Holly George is a two-way softball player at Penn State Greater Allegheny. Last year as a freshman, she had a great season, and this coming season with last year’s experience, she could have even more of a breakout year.
In her freshman season at the plate, Holly George hit .350 with a team-leading 11 RBIs and a home run, alongside a .422 SLG and .500 OPS. She had a very great bat that led herself to the PSUGA Freshman of the Year Honors.
She also pitched and led the team in innings and appearances, as well as strikeouts. This year it will be interesting to see how she will pitch and if she will lead the team in innings again. She will definitely improve from her first year because of the experience with the team.
Being a two-way player is great in college because you can always show up to help the team out in any situation! Even at big D1 schools like Alabama or Auburn, most players are just strictly Pitcher Only or a position in the field, that’s why it’s a great thing to have a player that can play on both sides of the ball, and come up clutch when needed as well.
This season, I’m looking forward to seeing if PSUGA can have a bounce-back season because they did go winless last year, but they do have a new coach now, and it will be interesting to what he brings to the team, and how players will be used.
On a bright note, the team did have many young players, and with that year of experience, it could benefit everyone into becoming an even better player. This upcoming season they open up in eight days (March 20th at 2 PM) against Penn State Mont Alto.
