Maple Ridge softball star Taylor De Adder is being picked to lead the Lee University Lady Flames into the coming season of NCAA action, with both her bat and her arm.
Lee is in Cleveland, and competes in the Div. II Gulf South Conference. Play begins in February, and the Lady Flames have conference games in Alabama, Tennessee, Georgia and Mississippi.
De Adder is a hard-hitting senior who has been named to the preseason All-GSC team. Last season she was an all-conference player who led her team in hitting with an average of .384, runs scored with 34, and slugging percentage at .625. She also tied for the team lead in RBI with 36.
In 12 appearances as a pitcher, she posted a 4-4 record with a 4.34 ERA, and was a stalwart for the team down the stretch last season.
In the field, De Adder played first and the hot corner last season, but her coach plans to keep her on first base this year.
The Maple Ridge secondary grad is majoring in health science and has been on the honour roll. She won a national championship with the White Rock Renegades in 2017.
