WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) -

The UNCW softball team has added three players for the 2017 season - Booth Braswell, Hannah Runge and Dominique Travers.

Braswell batted .412 in her junior season East Lincoln High School.

"Booth is really an intense athlete," UNCW coach Kristy Norton said. "She is so passionate about the game and can hit away or slap from the left side. She should be an exciting player to watch over the next four seasons."

Runge batted .450 as a junior at West Forsyth High School.

"Hannah does many things well on the field," Norton said. "She is a second baseman and outfielder who will be consistent for us offensively. She will be a nice addition to our lineup as a left-handed hitter."

Travers hit .654 and drove in 24 runs as a junior at Forest Park High School in Woodbridge, Va.

"Dominique brings an incredible amount of offensive power to our team," Norton said. "She is an energetic young woman and really stands out on the field when you watch her play."
