FORT DEFIANCE — It was a moment that Fort Defiance senior Lilian Berry insisted she’s been waiting for since she first put on a glove.

“Ever since I started playing, I imagined pitching on the big screen and being up there,” Berry said.

On Wednesday, with her closest friends, teammates and family members around her, Berry made a dream a reality when she signed her National Letter of Intent to play softball at Penn State.

The 5-foot-6 right-hander is the first Division I softball signee from Fort Defiance in over 20 years.

Too small, need a lefty, a bit of a project for the Dukes, too many unknowns.

Penn St 7-34 last year

Heck, I was trying to make a joke, turns out there's probably some truth to my nonsense.

RE: 2022 Dukes Softball
I got a chance today to listen to the "In The Circle" podcast. Their last few have had a lot of JMU coverage.
If you haven't listened to the Loren LaPorte interview, I highly recommend it. Plus, some really good commentary on the conference that shall not be named.
Let's just say I hope he lives up to what he says! :)

Anyway, it's good stuff. Listen to it.

Yes it was well known that she was going to UNC for grad school as they talked about it during CWS. I am guessing she then decided to use the extra year from Covid and play softball there.

It does suck losing her, especially in seeing how the transfer portal has been used and manipulated. But this is exactly the reason why they implemented the grad transfer rule. Get your diploma and transfer to a school that has a graduate program your school does not provide, and use up your remaining eligibility. Kudos to Sara and good luck in Chapel Hill.

Michelle Sullivan is doing the same thing at Duke. She's enrolled in the Fuqua School of Business

Is it just me or is it strange to play in 33 games, starting in 18 of them, but only have 30 ABs?

A welcome add! She’s a middle infield player…the possible replacement for Sara at 2nd base.

The 5-foot-6 right-hander is the first Division I softball signee from Fort Defiance in over 20 years.

I think Kate Gordon’s sister also signed or is committed to play at Penn St. I was told “she wanted to blaze her own path” and don’t really consider JMU for that reason. It wouldn’t surprise me if this fort defiance pitcher and Kate Gordon’s sister got recruited together in some manner.

Also, how is no one calling this publication out for forgetting the best softball player that has ever played at Fort Defiance…. Megan Good. I’m pretty sure she signed with JMU less than 20 years ago…..

It is extremely weird to look at...

But doesn't softball have this weird "designated player" rule? I seem to remember something like that from watching JMU's run.

EDIT - Yes...here is the rule explained:
