As I mentioned yesterday, Coach Hutch landed 3 outstanding players in this year's recruitment. One of those players is Megan Betsa, a pitcher from the Union Grove Wolverines located in McDonough Ga.
Megan is a 5-8 pitcher. Not much is available about Megan because the Wolverines are not your typical State PowerHouse softball team. As a matter of fact, the Wolverines won their first Georgia State Championship primarily due to Megan's arm.
I was able to garner some data on Megan. She has an over-powering fastball (A-la Traina) and an off speed pitch that drops off the table (A-la Ricketts). This is a wonderful combination to have. Stephanie Spierman graduates this spring so we certainly need a third pitcher for 2014.
The Mothership says, "She led McDonough to the state championship this fall, marking the first title in school history. A three-time all-state and all-region selection, Betsa set a single-season record with 464 strikeouts as a senior. She finished her career with 1,349 strikeouts and nabbed Pitcher of the Year honors for the state of Georgia as a freshman and a junior."
Megan has a real good stick as well. She had some big knocks in the State Championship tourney.
Welcome Megan to the family. It will be an easy transformation from high school named Wolverines to us. Good luck in your collegiate career. Please make sure you bring snow boots and a snow shovel. You are welcome to visit us on the blog anytime and I hope you like football and basketball because we have World Class teams.
Again, welcome Megan. We are a better team with you on the team and Go Blue!!!
