BATTING AVERAGE
“Kathryn Sandercock is the real deal-a dangerous hitter as well as a dominating pitcher. The improvement with her mechanics from last year to this year was remarkable. As if she wasn't tough enough to hit last year, this year she really mixed speed and worked the ball around all four quadrants of the strike zone.”
Rita Horning Rahl
Head Coach at Elizabeth Seton High
