A hard worker in the classroom, weight room, and on the ball field, Kendall is an great ball player. As a very coachable player, Kendall's character far outshines her peers on a day-to-day basis. On the field, Kendall is our varsity starting catcher, catching almost every inning for us this past season. I gap to gap hitter with above average power, Kendall increased her batting average by .200 points this past season. Behind the plate, she displayed an increased knowledge of calling games on her own, more consistent blocking techniques, and a drastic decrease in her pop-time, which currently sits at 2.08 seconds, while throwing out almost 30% of base-runners. She would be a great addition to any college program!
