Over the weekend, the Under Armour Softball Factory National Tryout made a stop in Xenia, OH at the Athletes in Action Sports Complex where some very talented and hard-working players attended the event to prepare for the upcoming season.
The weather was picture-perfect for the month of February as players came out for both the National Tryout and College PREP Program events.
Here are three standout players from this past weekend’s tryout:
Michaela Medich – The 2019 first baseman from Galloway, OH attends Hilliard Bradley High school and receives the ball very well around the bag at first and is an excellent communicator with great hands. Medich has shown power potential in previous events she’s attended (National Tryout in Dayton, OH last February and Advanced Training at the Junior Women’s World Championships last August in OKC) she generates great bat speed. She’s able to load and launch effectively with hand separation so that she can square up on the ball well.
Kristen Rappold – Rappold, a 2018 RHP from Newton Local High School in Pleasant Hill, OH, got her velocity up between 59 and 60 MPH during the event. Her presence on the mound is solid. With the bat, she’s a gap-to-gap hitter with good pop. Kristen is able to stay inside the ball really well and is quick to get the bat to the ball.
Sophie Weber – Sophie is a 2019 infielder/outfielder with good arm strength ad quick feet at both positions. Weber, who attends Springboro High School in Springboro, OH moves really well on the field overall and has good balance at the plate. She’s able to stay inside the ball with lots of pop. Her hands are quick and has the makings of a solid line drive hitter.
