Moon Township, Pa.Robert Morris University softball head coach Craig Coleman, M.D., announced the signing of two student-athletes to National Letters of Intent (NLI) Wednesday.

Stacey Capp (McKees Rocks, Pa. / Montour) and Jordan Gurganus (Chesapeake Va. / Hickory) have each signed NLI’s with RMU and will join the Colonials in the 2013-14 academic year.

Capp earned her third straight All-State honor in 2012 from the Pennsylvania Softball Coaches’ Association as she led Montour to the semifinals of the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association, Inc. (PIAA) State Tournament for the second time in three years. She hit .546 for the Spartans in 2012 with a .609 on-base percentage and a .762 slugging mark and was equally effective in crossing the plate (32 runs) as driving home her fellow teammates (31 RBI). Capp, a middle infielder, was also named a Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Top Ten All-Star in 2012 after helping Montour to its second Western Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic League (WPIAL) championship of her career. Capp, a three-time all-section honoree, has also competed for the Pittsburgh Lady Roadrunners for the past 10 years. Over the last two years, Capp has hit .468 with a .507 OBP and a .682 SLG%, helping the Roadrunners to a 95-17 mark in this span. She has scored 116 runs in this stretch, tallied 85 RBI and swiped 32 bases and helped the squad place among the top 24 teams at the 2011 Amateur Softball Association of America/USA Nationals.

Capp is the younger sister of former Colonial Sarah Capp, who was a senior for Robert Morris this past season.

“Stacey is a great all-around athlete who can play multiple positions defensively and hit for both average and power,” Coleman saidWe feel that she is the best softball player in the WPIAL in the class of 2013 and are glad that she chose RMU.”
