You nailed it Rich.

One added note:
Huntingtown HS is ranked #1 in MD and #31 in the country by Max Preps. Tori Fletcher is their go to pitcher. So Far this year, Huntingtown has only given up more than 1 run once this year.

I have been watching some of the NCAAs
A really large difference in the level of play. Particularly on the mound.. Our ladies seem much smaller, albeit talented.

I noticed that too last year vs UCLA. It was almost like women vs girls.

Kittel, Poole and Cimino do seem to comparable , at least as to size, with those players. Good chance they are just as talented. :)

I have found very little on Lexi Poole except for that glowing story a few years ago. I think she is a slapper though.
Perhaps you were thinking of Truitt who is already 6' in her sophomore year.

Side note:
Huntingtown HS is in the Final 4 in Maryland. Tori Fletcher is a huge reason why since they won their first three games by shutout. She is only a junior. Huntingtown is now ranked #23 in the country.

Gahanna Lincoln is also in the Final 4 in Ohio. Addie Kittel is a huge reason why with 2 homers in her last game. She now has 21 on the season

Actually forgot to include Katy. Senior moment :)
Included Lexi for her athleticism. A plate setter for the power hitters.

Addie Kittel's softball season is over. They lost 5-4 in the 7th.

Here is the interesting part. Their opponents walked Addie 3 times, 2 intentionally. In the 4th AB, she hit a ball a foot outside the strike zone the opposite way for a HR, her 22nd. I think we have a power hitter next year.

I was just reading the newspaper summary. Hard to get the W with 5 errors. Looking forward to see how Addie will progress up here.

Huntingtown is now in the title game for the 3rd time in 3 years. Tori Fletcher is a junior. Coincidence? She just pitched her 4th consecutive shutout in the playoffs to get there.
