Between January 2016 and January 2017, several members of the Pittsburgh Power organization will be logging the airline miles as they participate in several softball related events. With the combination of athletic, cultural, and educational experiences, these players will have memories that will last a lifetime. Congratulations and best of luck to all players in their future endeavors.
Queen of Diamonds North - January 2016 - Kent State University
Mirjana Hutnik, Trinity Murphy, Hayden Powroznik, Samantha Pykare, and Kelsey Smith participated in the Queen of Diamonds North showcase. This showcase allowed our Pittsburgh Power players an opportunity to showcase their talents to college coaches. The core focus of this event was to market our organization’s players, resulting in the exposure needed to get on the radar screens of colleges and universities.
