Congrats to 2 former Performance One Athletes, Kaitlyn Richardson of the University of Minnesota (Sandra Day O’Conner HS) and Lauren Haeger of the University of Florida (Dear Valley HS) for both being named in the top 50 College Softball Players in the Country. Both Kaitlyn and Lauren trained with Coach Micela while they where in High School. They came to develop strength and power. Another main reason was to be in a Strength & Conditioning Program that was similar to what they were going to experience at the Division 1 level. When both girls showed up to school their Freshman Year of College they had the physical maturity and training experience of a third year player. This allowed both girls to be immediate impact players for their teams and start right away. Strength & Power for Hitting and Pitching allowed these girls to separate themselves from the competition. Arizona has produced some of the best softball players in the country.
Coach Micela has worked with top athletes from all over Arizona in a multitude of Sports. One of his favorite group of athletes to work with is Softball Players. “There tough and train hard” -Coach Joe. Great job girls we are very proud of you! Good Luck with the up coming season we’ll be watching.
