As an MJC Pirate, Morgan had limited time her freshman year, splitting time in the
outfield and working on her game. “Morgan had an unbelievable off-season, she worked
out, worked on hitting, and had the best season of her 6 years with me as a player,”
said Donaldson. “She came in and started hitting the ball over the fence and a different
kind of line drive that I hadn’t seen from her.”
Morgan’s batting average improved by nearly .200 points from 2020 to 2021 while recording 25 put-outs and 2 assists from three different outfield positions and batting .296 for the season. That lead to a scholarship from Salem University in Wolf Summit, West Virginia.
The Tigers were 6-8 in their limited season because of COVID 19 restrictions.
Salem Coach Steve Potts looks to gain some normalcy for 2022 and hopes Morgan will be a huge part of helping the Tigers stabilize the outfield and help the batting average. Donaldson states, “Despite the challenges of playing during a COVID year, Keeney has been relentless in her quest to continue her softball career. I couldn’t be more proud of a player.”
MJC Softball finished the 2021 season with a 13-6 record.
