MONTGOMERY, Ala. ---- Head Coach Chris Steiner-Wilcoxson has announced the signings of Alexia Boggess and Sarah Angulo to the Auburn Montgomery softball program for the 2014 season.
Boggess will join AUM after graduating from Luella High School in Locust Grove, Georgia. She was a four-year varsity starter for the Lions, finishing her senior season with a .404 batting average, four home runs, 35 RBI and 12 doubles. Boggess earned first team all-region honors for her performance.
In her sophomore and junior seasons, Boggess was recognized as Luella's MVP and Best Offensive Player, and she was also named Rookie of the Year as a freshman.
Academically, she has made the Honor Roll in every semester, and is currently in the top five percent of her class. The daughter of Donny and Amy Boggess, she plans to major in forensics at AUM.
"I chose AUM because I felt that I would fit in well on-campus and with the softball team," Boggess said. "Coach Wilcoxson and I mesh well together, and we both like to win."
Angulo has played on the softball team at American Heritage School in Plantation, Florida for six years, joining the team while she was still in seventh grade. She has part of three high school championships during that span (2008, 2009, 2012). During last season's title run, Angulo hit .393 with a .439 on-base percentage, 19 RBI and a .980 fielding percentage.
She earned second team all-state honors at the class 5A level in 2012. The Sun-Sentinel in South Florida gave her second team recognition as well, and she also received honorable mention from the paper in 2010 and 2011. Angulo has been a member of the Gold Coast Hurricanes softball travel team for the last nine years.
Also on the volleyball team in 2012, she was named team MVP by her school. The daughter of Albert and Chrissy Angulo, she plans to major in psychology at AUM.
"I am very excited to play softball here at AUM," Angulo said. "Especially with coaches that have played softball at the highest level. I know that I will learn so much from them to be the best that I can be."
The duo joins Claire Wilson and Reese Byrnes in AUM's 2014 recruiting class. The 2013 season begins next month, with the Warhawks looking to build on their first ever NAIA tournament appearance last year.
