Minot’s Benno signs with Beavers

Minot High senior Lexi Benno signed a letter of intent to play for Minot State next season, MSU softball coach Bill Triplett announced Wednesday.

Benno is in her fourth year playing varsity softball for the Majettes. The 5-foot-8 right-hander notched her first win of the season in the circle Tuesday against Turtle Mountain.

“We are happy to have Alexis join us,” Triplett said in a press release. “It is great to have players from the area. She is a good stick and good pitcher, but we plan on moving her to a corner – third of first base – and we feel, down the road, she can help us.”

Benno becomes the second signing for the Beavers. Ashley Hill committed to MSU in November.
