My Students

We are a Title 1 school with students from very diverse backgrounds. Our Athletics program includes 85% of our student population.

Our most popular sport is softball, and our softball team is the shining light of our school.

They have developed their own culture of leadership, accountability, having each other's backs, and competitive excellence. They are the hardest working group at the school. They represent themselves and our school in a first-class manner always and consistently. Throughout all the adversity that comes with the somewhat transient nature of a charter school and the growing pains of a new high school, the softball program is the one program at our school that has maintained.

My Project

Analytics and advanced metrics are becoming prevalent in all sports. Fastpitch softball is no different. Most colleges are using bat sensors to help teach, analyze, and improve their players' swings.

This project will give my high school players the same experience as colleges and will help promote college readiness!

These bat sensors will be an invaluable tool to help my girls be able to practice hitting and be able to see everything on their phones, from video to all of the metrics and analytics. It will also be an added benefit to be able to tell college recruiters that we use that technology and be able to share the data with them, thus making my players more recruitable to colleges!
