KCKCC catcher Megan Dike signs with Bethel College


KANSAS CITY, KAN. ----- Kansas City Kansas Community College catcher Megan Dike will continue her collegiate softball career at Bethel College in North Norton, Kan.

A sophomore from Lansing, Dike was signed to a letter of intent by Bethel Coach Stacy Middleton Tuesday.

“I’m very excited,” said Middleton, who started the softball program at Bethel three years ago. “Megan is a good catcher and a great hitter; fundamentally solid and well coached. She’s going to bring a great work ethic to our program.”

Dike had a banner season at the plate, catching every game and hitting .365 with one home run and 16 runs batted in.

“Bethel is getting an incredible player,” said KCKCC Coach Kacy Tillery. “She calls a game as well as any catcher we’ve had here and she pitches as well so she has the know how to help a pitcher out when in trouble.”

The daughter of Amy and Steve Dike, Dike said she was especially attracted to Bethel because of its Special Education program. “I think it’s going to be a good fit on and off the field,” said Dike. “They’ve got a good education program.”
