OTTAWA (Canada) - July 2008 - Combat Sports is pleased to announce the signing of Women's Fastpitch Player, Lisa Fernandez a three-time Olympic Gold Medalist and fastptich legend. Under the new agreement Lisa will exclusively swing Combat bats in competitive play.

"We are extremely proud to have an athlete of Lisa's caliber join our growing team," says Steven Sutherland, President of Combat Sports. "Her name and track record speak for itself and we are excited for what the future holds for both Lisa and Combat."

Known for power and fearlessness, Lisa Fernandez is arguably the most recognized name in softball. As a pitcher, Fernandez is untouchable. As a hitter, masterful. On the mound for the UCLA Bruins, she lost only 7 times while winning 93 games with the most successful program in the nation. But 74 shut outs are only a small piece of her crown. With a .510 batting average her senior year with the Bruins, Fernandez has proven she is a force to be reckoned with, both at the plate and on the mound. One of few to be able to claim the honor, Fernandez is a Three-Time Olympic Gold Medalist leading the United States to victory in 1996, 2000, and 2004. Perhaps even more impressive though, is her Olympic record .545 batting average during the 2004 games in Greece.
