Katie Perry

Who: Katie Perry

School: Providence Christian

Sport: Softball

Class: Freshman

Highlights: Had 10 strikeouts in five innings and allowed no earned runs, in addition to her two hits, including a triple, and four RBIs in a win over Tucker. Also struck out 12 in a three-hitter and had two hits against Mount Pisgah, and struck out nine and had two hits, including an RBI triple, against King’s Ridge.

Coach Preston Smith’s take: “It is no coincidence that our season started to turn around at the same time Katie’s did. As a freshman, Katie was been forced into an important leadership role from Day 1 and it’s given her a chance to learn on the job quickly. After a slow start, she’s stepped up even more than I could have imagined. I’m proud of Katie’s perseverance throughout the season and am looking forward to seeing her continue to lead her team into the state tournament next week.”
