Paige Lowary, 14, Missouri Softball
Didn’t play travel softball and only threw fastball while in high school. Coach Earleywine heard about her from a friend. I guess this goes to show that you don’t need travel or fancy recruiting to play D1 in a big way (being over 6 foot tall and throwing over 70 mph helped I’m sure).
Cheridan Hawkins pitching, 11, Oregon
Hawkins threw a perfect game and three no-hitters in her stellar junior season! Hawkins dominates with spin, not speed.
