    I didn't say "just attending a camp". But if you didn't attend the camp you're not on the list, correct?

    Looks like that just means she attended a camp and was one of the best attendees, probably good enough for the hot 100 though. https://www.flosoftball.com/articles/5968164-2017-usa-elite-select-30-all-american-teams-announced

    Maia Engelkes Give a loud #WarEagle to Maia Engelkes, who is our first signee of this year's recruiting class! Engelkes, an infielder, comes to The Plains all the way from Sioux Falls, S.D! Welcome Maia! Carlee McCondichie The last time she was a freshman: - She led the state with 105 hits in a season. - Had a .525 batting average. - Struck out only four times in over 200 at-bats. Simply? She "handles the bat exceptionally well." Let's give a big #WarEagle to Carlee! Maddie Majors From All-State to Super All-State. From a Jaguar to a Tiger. From a mother who is an @AuburnU graduate. She's no stranger to saying #WarEagle! Welcome, Maddie! KK Dismukes Her name is Kaylyn, but she goes by KK. (And we have a feeling she'll be striking out plenty of batters once arriving to The Plains! ) Everyone say #WarEagle to KK Dismukes!

    2018 fall softball practice starts

    Not sure how objective he is, sounds like the everyone on the team is an all-star. The freshman are "too good" not to see the field, but 2/3 of them didn't even play because of injury. 🤔

    Yeah scoring 0 against Wallace State Dothan is a really bad sign, not entirely shocking though. Take a bad offensive team from last year, lose key players and add no new impact recruits, and the players who are supposed to fill the vacancies have no experience = bad results. https://www.masseyratings.com/game.php?s0=299002&t0=Auburn&h=0&s1=299002&t1=Wallace+Community+College-Dothan

    Tannon wouldn't get much playing time on Washington, Taylon would likely start but would have to play 2nd.

    That is almost certainly not the case, the softball strikezone is tiny, and even good pitchers don't have pinpoint command. Plus a mostly singles hitter isn't the one you turn loose on 3-0.

    As I said before, CMD did a poor job giving players a fair shot - only 11 players on the team had 30+ ABs, plus Olszewski with 29 and Bree Fornis with 10. Tissier, who might be our starting catcher next year got 9 ABs, including 0 in conference play. Give Swindle or MaKayla a shot as well. There are signs CMD is rash, emotional and impulsive. His body language when Perry blew threw his imo late and subtle stop sign (throwing up his hands like a child denied candy by his mom), then benching her despite the Tiger's offensive struggles (I know she sucked in SEC play, but you can't ignore her vv good non-conference stats). He also insta-cut Livy Schiele when she wanted to explore transfer options - I know you want players fully committed but given the last minute coaching change [she was a Myers recruit] and Auburn's need for talent, I feel like being a little lenient and doing something that allows the possibility that she stays on the team would have been more prudent. Veach's SLG% dropped 100 points though, and while Podany's SLG% increased slightly, her OBP% dropped a lot. I really like Podany but I think her fielding can't make up for her bat against pitchers who can throw a lot of strikes (ie in the SEC). I think expecting Rivera to repeat her 2017 stats (esp SEC stats) was probably optimistic, but she really seemed out of control this year. She started out fence-swinging as you said, often finishing her swing with one hand instead of the two she used on almost every swing last year), then eventually calmed down before getting back out of control for the playoffs. She was also making some ill advised throws from the outfield, plus the dive towards the line on FSU's walkoff ISTP HR. Taylon and Rivera are also solid assets, while JP, Podany and KK still provide me with hope. The pitching won't be Carlson good, but we're still pretty deep in the circle. The bad news is that the incoming freshman look like "defenders" again.

    This is the time to give KC a break if we want to do something in the playoffs, she's 2nd in the SEC in IP.

    Yeah, I wouldn't give Chardonnay too long a leash either way, but looking at the forecast there's still a reasonable chance they play G3, I think a cellar visit is still in order. With a 3-0 lead our chance of winning is so high either way that it's kind of a waste to pitch KC again.
