At Ohio Northern, Leathwerood will compete for head coach Peggy Ewald, who recently completed her 13th season as head coach. Last season, she led the Polar Bears to a third place finish in the Ohio Athletic Conference. Abby is the daughter of Jeffrey and Amy Leatherwood.

 

These two commitments bring the total number for the MHS Class of 2017 to 23. Further signee information will be shared throughout the 2016-17 academic year as it is finalized.
