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 Cummings, Ga., native Katherine Huey.
Huey, a three-time first team all-region honoree, earned Forsyth County Pitcher of the Year accolades in 2014 and 2016. Huey helped South Forsyth High School to consecutive top-five finishes in the Georgia state tournament in 2015 (6A) and 2016 (7A). She also played for the Atlanta Vipers travel organization.
Young on Huey: “We expect Katherine to provide support in the circle as well as contributing from the plate. Katherine has pitched her high school team to the Georgia state playoffs the past two years while taking her travel team to top-20 national finishes.”
