Westmoreland County High School Notebook: Mt. Pleasant’s Hutter Reopens Recruitment


Saturday, May 7, 2022 | 9:01

Mt. Pleasant softball star Katie Hutter has changed her college plans.

Originally a commitment from Akron — a move she made in the fall of 2020 — Hutter opted out due to a coaching change.

The senior has opened her recruitment.

Akron has offered to take a year off her scholarship, probably just for college students, but she still wants to play ball.

“There was talk of stopping the program there,” said Hutter, a .593 hitter and shortstop who will likely play in the outfield in college. “I didn’t just want to go to school there. I wanted to play.

Bowling Green, George Mason and Cal (Pennsylvania) are now in play as possible suitors.

“It stresses me out a bit, but I play when it’s time to play and I care about it afterwards,” Hutter said.

David to Rollins

Greensburg Central Catholic baseball player Zach David is heading to Rollins College (Florida) to become a college pitcher. David had been clocked in the upper 80mph range before elbow surgery last summer during travel season slowed him down.

He underwent surgery and is gradually starting to throw again. He’s played first base this season and is hitting over .500 for the Centurions.

David also considered Johns Hopkins.

More recruiting

Conlan Greene has two other NCAA Division I football scholarship offers. The Penn-Trafford junior added Central Michigan and Maine to his roster. These schools join St. Francis (Pennsylvania) and Fordham.

Greene (6-4, 250) played tight end and defensive end last season but could end up at linebacker in college.

It will also be interesting to see where he plays on the court in the fall at Penn-Trafford.

His teammate, junior lineman Joe Enick (6-3, 290), also added another D-1 offer to his growing roster. Central Michigan joins Fordham, Youngstown State, Fordham and The Citadel.

Enick is a central and defensive tackle.
