Softball star Brook Miko is taking Towson black and gold to Germany.
The Tigers announced Thursday that the infielder, who led the program to its first postseason appearance in 2018, will play for the Neunkirchin Nightmares, a German team near Frankfurt.
Miko, from Ladera Ranch, Calif., sprinkled her name across the NCAA record books this season, as of May 21 topping the nation in RBIs (76) and RBIs per game (1.25).
She also ranked third in doubles (23), fifth in sacrifice flies (six), ninth in doubles per game (0.38), 12th in hits (77), 16thin total bases (138), 21st in runs per game (0.98), and 37th in toughest to strike out (39.6).
The only player to start all 61 games, Miko set Towson single-season records for total RBIs, runs (60) and doubles. She had 21 multi-RBI games and 24 multi-hit games, and was second on the team to Nicole Stockinger in home runs (12).
The 5-foot-6 infielder batted .416/.465/.746 this spring and finished as the Tigers’ all-time leader in runs (151), doubles (60) and RBIs (189).
“Hanging up my cleats in one place and lacing them up in another as one door closes and another one opens,” Miko said in a social media post. “God has blessed me with an amazing journey on and off the field at Towson, but I am beyond excited to announce to continue my softball journey!”
Miko was named to the All-Colonial Athletic Association, National Fastpitch Coaches Association, Mid Atlantic and Eastern College Athletic Conference Division I first teams, as well as the National Invitational Softball Championship all-region team.
