Hesston College softball coach Andrew Sharp announces Desiree Bretado, a pitcher/first baseman from Whitter (Calif.) High School, and Miranda Dolsman, an outfielder/first baseman from Falcon (Colo.) High School, as the newest additions to the Larks program.
A three-time captain and first-team all-league player, Bretado adds pitching depth and a big bat to the Larks roster. A Whittier High Scholar Athlete, she will study nursing at Hesston.
“I can’t wait to have Dezz on our campus,” Sharp said. “She’s a competitive kid who will contribute in a variety of ways to our program.”
Bretado is active with Fellowship of Christian Athletes. She is the daughter of Henry and Griselda Bretado, Whittier.
Dolsman, a three-sport athlete at Falcon High, was named Defensive Player of the Year in 2013 in softball. An all-state academic selection and Honor Roll student, she will study nursing at Hesston. Dolsman joins fellow Falcon High teammate Moira Wells in the Larks 2015 recruiting class.
“Miranda is a good athlete who can play several defensive positions,” Sharp said. “She’s a high academic student who will transition well to college.”
Dolsman is the daughter of Gary Dolsman and Laura Reinke, both of Falcon. She attends Mountain Springs Church, Colorado Springs.
