DURHAM, N.C. – As the Duke Softball program continues their preparation for their inaugural season in 2018, we give you an inside look at the student-athletes that have cemented their legacy as part of the team's foundation moving forward.
For this weekly series, Blue Devil Network's own Rebecca Fiorentino will discuss the qualities and characteristics of each player with head coach Marissa Young, who, having served as an assistant coach at North Carolina, will be entering her first season as a head coach in the ACC.
In this week's episode, we highlight Duluth, Ga. native Jameson Kavel.
As a junior, Kavel batted .510 with 29 stolen bases. She was also a three-time all-region and all-state pick, and a two-time NCSAA All-America selection. Kavel earned region Player of the Year honors in 2016 and led Wesleyan to state runner-up finish in 2016. She also played for the Southern Force travel organization and lettered in basketball..
Young on Kavel: “Jameson is a player who has developed into a versatile middle infielder and outfielder with a solid bat. In high school, she played on a state championship basketball team and a state runner-up softball team. We expect Jameson will be an impactful utility player for us.”
