    Any updates on Kelly Barnhill, I know she has been all over the country this summer playing travel ball but I was hoping on hearing some good news by now. Let's keep the momentum going.

    Get her info to coach Rocha. Tim and his staff are very "open door" type coaches

    I am sure they have it. Her mother is very proactive in this regard. The young lady sees a private pitching coach twice a week and this coach has connections at UF. She just was invited to play with a travelling team that is packed with Plant high players. The coaches there want to get an early look at her throwing as soon as possible.

    Her mother also told me that she can now throw 7 different pitches.

    Kelly Barnhill pitching update 8/27. She struck out 23 in an 8 inning win and 19 in a 7 inning win last week. I think that qualifies as power pitching. :D

    24 outs in the eight inning game. she strikes out 23. who recorded the other out? that had to be a very boring game for the position players assuming they even took the field.

    I have seen reports that Kelly has been timed at 73 MPH. Regularly hits 70 MPH. Kelly likely will prove to be among the top softball pitchers to have played at Florida.
