Coach Craft spoke about Ally Amato’s contribution to this season in an interview via email.
“Ally has been a consistent starter for us this season in the line-up. Her bat has contributed a lot – offensively, she is one of our most consistent hitters, she is a tough out, drives a lot of runs in for us (she leads the team in RBI’s – 41), and also hits for good power with 10 doubles, 3 triples and 5 home runs.” She said.
Both Amato and Halverson are excited for the future and thanked their teammates extensively for their hard work as well.
