I think they will all fit nicely into the UAM softball program.”

Kali Bolter is getting set for her final season at Plano High School, where she is already a two-time first team all-district selection academically and athletically. Last season, she hit .397 with an on base percentage of .478. She totaled 45 hits with 25 runs batted in last season, while also recording 15 stolen bases. She has been a part of three straight district championships.

Chanlynn Turner is wrapping up her prep career at Sunnyvale after recording 209 strikeouts in 130 innings pitched last season as a junior. She also produced offensively as well with 36 hits for a .533 batting average.

Crystal Kegley is a three-time all-state performer at Foreman and was named the Texarkana Gazette Player of the Year, Max Preps NFCA Player of the Week, Max Preps Small School First Team All-America, 2A State Tournament Most Valuable Player and All-Arkansas Preps First Team, among other honors. She holds two state records for a single season with 68 RBI and a 1.149 slugging percentage. Last year, she hit .589 with 12 homeruns, 16 doubles, four triples and 29 stolen bases, while also posting a 27-4 record in the circle with a 1.45 earned run average and 183 strikeouts.

Jordan Williams is finishing her prep career at Bryant High School, where she was an all-conference honorable mention last year with a .400 batting average and a .562 on base percentage. She has been a part of a Bryant team that has gone 59-20 with a conference championship and a state title over the past three years, including a perfect 34-0 run during her freshman season in 2012.
