The IU Southeast softball team has signed second baseman/outfielder Haley-Ann Kueneman of Calgary, Alberta, Canada, IU Southeast coach Joe Witten announced on Wednesday. Kueneman is the first international student-athlete to sign with the IU Southeast softball program.
“Haley brings to our program the vision that we are trying to promote,” Witten said. “First, she is a great student with high expectations. Secondly, she is a driven athlete that pushes herself on and off the field daily, while working towards competitive greatness. Finally, she elevates people around her by her intelligence, kindness and aptitude. I’m excited about her future as a Grenadier student-athlete.”
