2018 High School Performances
From 2007 through 2018, in every season except one a pitcher trained in the basics through PitchingMagic has led her team to the MSHSL State Tournament in Mankato, Minnesota. 2018 was a very good year at the HS level for pitchers who learned the basics using PitchingMAgic training. The accomplishments listed below are mostly from girls who started in clinics and later had private lessons with me.
Varsity Starters at 11 high schools
Hopkins, Edina, Minnetonka, Forest Lake, North Branch, Chisago Lakes, St. Agnes, Rush City, Columbia Heights, North Lakes Academy and Patrick Henry
These schools competed in 7 conferences and those schools won 6 conference championships.
These schools competed in 9 sections and 4 advanced to the state tournament in Mankato (and Hopkins lost to Edina in a 15 inning section finals game)
2 Pitchers were named first team all state and one was second team all state (Star Tribune)
5 pitchers made college commitments including 9th grader Genevieve Ovsak who gave her verbal to Syracuse
6 pitchers reached 60 mph during the HS season
There were many great performances at JV as well including 7th grader Ashley Mandell who struck out 30 of the first 33 batters she faced before getting promoted to varsity.
