    Redd was a left-handed pitcher for Douglas County High School, where she qualified for state twice in the past two seasons. She is an All-Continental Conference honorable mention.
    "I'm delighted to have added Megan to our roster," Sharp said. "She gives us a good pitching option from the left side and I'm looking forward to her contributions this season. Megan is a well-rounded student athlete and will thrive at Hesston College."
