MSU adds pitcher Fournier to 2022 recruiting class
The Minot State softball team continues to build for a successful future as head coach Nat Wagner is pleased to announce the signing of yet another talented prospect for the 2022-23 academic year.
Coach Wagner announced this past weekend that top pitching prospect Kierra Fournier from Victoria, British Columbia, has signed a National Letter of Intent and will be a freshman in the classroom and on the diamond for the Beavers starting in the fall of 2022.
“Kierra has marked herself as one of the top Canadian pitchers in her age group,” Wagner said of Fournier, one of 25 players across Canada invited to the U19 Team Canada Selection Camp.
A three-sport athlete who plays softball, basketball and field hockey at Lambrick Park Secondary in British Columbia, Wagner adds of Fournier: “Kierra shines her brightest on the diamond. She brings to the Beaver pitching staff a power arm with great bite on her movement pitches and a wealth of upside. Steeped in instruction from some of Canada’s top pitching coaches, Kierra has blossomed under the tutelage of Rub Guenter and heads to Minot poised to make an immediate impact.
“A respected youth clinician and umpire in British Columbia, Kierra is a diligent worker who always looks to give back to the game,” Wagner added. “At Minot she aspires to major in history and become a high school history teacher.”
Fournier joins an already deep and talented 2022 recruiting class with six top prospects from across the west already having signed a Letter of Intent.
“MSU softball caps off its ’22 class with another talented, high-character player who promises to excel on and off the field,” Wagner said. “We are thrilled to welcome Kierra to the Beaver softball family.”
