  • Shocker Softball Class of 2019 Recruits

    Bredbenner Inks Six on National Signing Day

    HCKB signs 6 high schoolers in her 2019 recuiting class:

    Lainee Brown - Catcher - Oklahoma City, OK
    Madyson Espinosa - Utility - St. Louis, MO
    Lauren Johnson - Outfield - Maize, KS
    Sydney Nichols - Infield - Cameron, MO
    Kiersten Nixon - RHP - O'Fallon, MO
    Bailey Urban - Outfield - Omaha, NE

    Graduating Shockers include: Bailey Lange (P/OF), Laurie Derrico (SS), Asea Webber (OF), Mauriana Jamele (2B) and Bethany Canada (3B/1B)

    The key losses for the Shocks are Bailey and Laurie plus Asea is a solid centerfielder.

    The key recruit, as is generally the case, is probably the pitcher, Kiersten Nixon. I believe Kiersten played her club ball with the St. Louis Fusion.

    I also found a recruiting video on Kierston but it is 3.5 years old. Here is a brief video from the Troy Buchanan High School twitter account showing her rise ball in a game last month (that does look like a tough ptich to hit).

    Will have to see what they look like when the cleats hit the turf at the D-1 level but this appears to be a very good signing class.

    So what are the chances that in a 6-player reruiting class that you would have 2 players, who may well end up being battery mates, that have sisters named Kaydence.

    I'l take this a a sign of good things to come.

        Definitely a nice rise by Kiersten on the video. Sounds like some really good travel ball experience from several of them.

        Other than that, I know nothing! (Think Hogan's Heroes.)
