Blessed with great speed, this outstanding shortstop was one of Arizona’s great women softball players. She gained All-America honors in 1947 and 1949 as a member of the national championship A-1 Queens of Phoenix, Arizona. Sprint champion in the late 1930s, she covered a wide area afield and utilized her speed on the base paths to become one of Arizona softball’s leading base runners. An outstanding hitter as well, she often led the club in runs scored.
