Jaleesa Martinez

She showed her speed down the basepath on a dropped 3rd strike, being called safe and then later stealing bases showing off her superb baserunning skills. Her footwork was also shown off when on defense while playing 3rd as she charged balls and showed some nice drop step work. She has a strong, accurate arm and had a few putouts on the day.


Halie Gippe (2026 Firestone, CO.) from the Elite-X Bandits 16A - Hoffman had a great day at the plate hitting a long homerun ball over the rightfield fence to go along with multiple other hits on the day. She plays shortstop for the Bandits and has a great set of hands as well as a very strong accurate are and phenomenal footwork. She was a great communicator on the field and positively showed up for her teammates.


Brealea Stendel (2026 Fort Lupton, CO.) from the Hype 16B - Watts-DeShazer Does a great job behind the plate helping her pitchers out with excellent framing skills. She has a strong arm and showed that off today when catching girls stealing on more than one occasion. She also stood strong behind the plate when there was a great play at home where Brealea stayed strong and put on the tag against one of the opposing teams girls who was attempting to score. She also showed great leadership and was vocal in leading her team on the field while also staying positive with her pitcher.


Larrissa Arvizo (2026 Thornton, CO.) from the Colorado Hype 16B - Vigil showed her stuff today playing both short stop and 2nd base. She has a amazing set of soft hands and a very accurate, strong arm with quick feet to compliment her infield work.

Isobell Kerckaert (2025 Buffalo, WY) from the Wyoming Pride 16B - Hatch did a phenomenal job at 1st base today with having to dig a few balls out of the dirt as well as demonstrating her aggressiveness with the backdoor pick at 2nd base. She also showed her arm strength with a couple strong throws across the field to 3rd that were on the money. As a young player she proves to be very promising.


Taylor Morgan (2027 Cheyenne, WY.) from the Colorado Royals 16B - Loya did an outstanding job for her team today. She is a short stop/pitcher who had an amazing outing on the rubber this afternoon.
