2023 Summer & Fall Successes: We are coming off two great seasons that have built on each other. The summer of 2023 ended with a top 8 out of 43 finish in the gold bracket at the Midwest National Championship in Des Moines, IA. During the fall of 2023, the highlight was finishing in the top 4 at the PGF Midwest Shootout in Broken Arrow, OK! A tournament loaded with the top 2011 teams! We don’t shy away from competition!

Key Players: Rylee Stark- pitching, our Ace can hit a spot at any given time, Kyndal Clark- pitching, she brings the needed speed to vary up our pitching, Zoey Farris- catcher/outfield- she is a force behind the plate and covers so much ground in the outfield. Zoey is also clutch when needed and has had many walk offs last season and this season, Bree Shoemake- 1st/outfield- the lefty can swing the bat and drive in runs.

Expectations for 2024 Season: I expect this team to continue competing with the best competition out there. We have shown time and again that we can compete at any level, whether it’s our own 12u age group or playing up in 14u. I anticipate another year of success as we capitalize on our growth this season, both physically and mentally.

Prime 16u National

Team Social Media: @ar_prime_sb (Twitter/X), Prime Softball Academy (Facebook), ar_prime_sb (Instagram) @prime_sb5 (TikTok).

2023 Summer & Fall Successes: This is a new team.

Key Players: Skylar Steritt, MIF/OF, being recruited by Arkansas, Baylor, and Kansas. One of the best athletes – male or female – in Arkansas (2026). Sadie Steritt, MIF/OF, best bat to ball skills in the organization as a 2028 (2028). Mady Hokams, C/3B, 70 mph arm and 1.68 pop time (2027). Addison Fulbright, OF/C, plus athlete with several college offers (2025). Kaydee Brown, RHP, rising star in the organization and on multiple college radars (2026). Kend’ra Terry, LHP, 60+ mph arm with massive natural movement (2027).

Expectations for 2024 Season: We love this team and have high expectations for them when they get their legs underneath them. Skylar is truly one of the top players in America that very few know about yet. She’s an 11-time state champion in Arkansas as a sophomore in softball and track. Mady Hokams is as good of a catcher defensively as you’re ever going to find and she’s a 9th grader. The arms have big upside, and we think that this group’s overall athleticism will translate to big success going forward.

Vision Gold 18u

Coaching Staff: Erica Derryberry, Larry Tinkler, Kenzie Derryberry (member of Missouri State Softball team).

Team Social Media: @FastpitchVision (Twitter/X), VisionFastpitch (Facebook), vision_gold_18u (Instagram).

2023 Summer & Fall Successes: 18U Vision Gold had a great 2023 season, winning the Top Gun Prospect Series Tournament and the Perfect Game Elite 8 Invite. We also finished 5th in the Perfect Game Fall Elite Showcase, and 3rd in the upper flight of the Tulsa Elite Fall Invite. We also had very good showings last summer at the Tulsa Elite Invite, Top Gun Invite (Maverick Division), Scenic City Showcase, and World Fastpitch Championships.

Key Players: Alexis Franklin has been a big-time performer for us, leading us last season in both hitting and pitching.  She set multiple Arkansas High School State records this year and will be attending Pitt State in the fall to attend school and play softball. Amber Turner has been a force at the plate for us. She just finished helping her Bentonville High School team to, yet another state championship hit .800 for us in our first weekend out this summer.  She will be attending Tulsa University in the fall to attend school and play softball. Kadence Janney has helped us a ton both on the mound and at the plate. She is a true 3-way player who will be attending Missouri Southern in the fall to go to school and play softball. Keeley Elsea is an absolute force at the plate. She hit .395 for us last fall and dominated her high school season as well.  She will be attending Southwest Baptist University in the fall to go to school and play softball.

We currently have 4 uncommitted players:

Talyn Jackson (2025 C) – Talyn started behind the plate every game this spring for her Rogers High School team and can absolutely smash the ball at the plate.

Cindy Barger (2025 UTL) – Cindy is a strong defensive player for us, no matter where we ask her to play.  She also is one of our top hitters on the squad.  Last fall she had our 2nd highest batting avg at .472.  Cindy is a clutch hitter, who consistently comes up with big hits in big situations!

Madi Schoonover (2026 1B/3B/C) – Madi is a young player who can SMASH!  She hits the ball with tremendous velocity and can put the ball out of the park at any moment!

Joclyn Strickland (2026 RHP/1B) – Joclyn just recently joined our team, but she was the starting pitcher for her Rogers Heritage High School team and batted in the middle of the lineup for them all season.  She has excellent power at the plate and great command of her pitches.  She is going to be a huge part of our team this summer.

Expectations for 2024 Season: We have very high expectations for this summer.  We came off a great summer and a tremendous fall season (22-5-1) last year.  This is the most experienced team we’ve had in a long time, with 9 seniors currently on the squad.  The team chemistry we have is unmatched, and this group has the ability to compete with anyone we step on the field with!
