Kailey Hill is a rare student athlete. A three-sport varsity athlete, she could earn 12 varsity letters by the time she graduates.
In the fall Kailey plays on the varsity golf team. In the winter she plays varsity basketball. In the spring and summer and year-round, she lives softball.
She began playing softball at age 5 and hasn’t stopped. She played on a 12 and under national championship team, The Power Surge, before she entered Ramona High School.
Kailey has already made a commitment to play college softball at the University of San Diego. She has a 4.00 grade point average and plans to be a pre-med major.
She put up some impressive numbers last week for the Bulldog softball team. Kailey went 8 for 13 with three RBIs, a double, two triples, and a home run, and scored three times at the plate. Her on base percentage was .615 and her slugging percentage was an amazing 1.231.
She did not commit an error as a pitcher of shortstop in four games. She pitched 20 innings in three games and had a 1.40 ERA with 28 strikeouts. She held the opposing hitters to a .153 batting average. She did not give up a double, triple or a home run.
For her outstanding efforts, Kailey is the Ramona Sentinel Athlete of the Week.
