Janna Korak Commits To Marist

Courtesy of al.com

Janna Korak of Madison, AL has verbally committed to play softball at Marist College beginning in the 2014 season.

Very exciting commitment for the Red Foxes, as they land one of the top players in Alabama. Janna is a pitcher and outfielder for Alabama State 6A Champion Sparkman High School, a team that was ranked 26th in the nation this past season. She led the Lady Senators to a 64-7 record in 2012, as they plowed their way through the competition in the State Tournament, in which Janna earned the MVP award. In the circle she won three games at the tournament, but also drove home the winning run in the title game.

It's unclear at present whether or not Janna will pitch regularly at Marist, although she is termed as the "hardest thrower" on the Sparkman staff. She will certainly play, due in large part to her hitting ability. In 2012, she hit 11 home runs and 99 RBIs. Yes, you read that right...99 RBIs, which is an Alabama State record. yikes! Naturally, she was an All-Alabama selection. Janna plays travel ball with the Huntsville Sparks, who finished 17th in the 2011 ASA Nationals.

Congratulations Janna!

More concerning Marist later today...
