This girl is truly an amazing person. She has been playing softball and pitching ever since she was in 4th grade. She was also a great volleyball player. Kaitlyn is a hard worker that will do anything her coaches ask. She can play anywhere in the infield and do it well. As a four-year starter for her high school team (pitching 3 of them), Kait has put up some pretty impressive numbers. We are so proud of her and can't wait to watch her the next four years. She has the drive to win, but has a heart of gold, too!

The IGHSAU is committed to sharing the stories of high school female athletes. We believe a strong narrative can empower and inspire other females to try more, go the distance, and persevere in the face of hardship. That's why we want you -- parent, friend, athlete, coach -- to share the story of an Iowa Girl that inspires you. What makes their story special? What have they overcome or accomplished? Is there something beyond the sport that makes their story especially unique? We want to know.

To submit, you can either:
1. Email your story to contact@ighsau.org.
2. Post your story on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram with #ShareHerStory and tag @IGHSAU

Be sure to include the athlete's name, school, and a picture!
