Frisco High School softball player Maddie MacGrandle was honored as the 2015-2016 Gatorade Texas Softball Player of the Year.
Gatorade cited MacGrandle’s athletic excellence, high standards of academic achievement and exemplary character on and off the field in selecting her as Texas’s best high school softball player.
As a 5-foot-11 junior left handed pitcher, MacGrandle led the Lady Raccoons to a 31-2 record and a spot in the Class 5A state tournament and semifinals against Birdville High where the Raccoon’s season ended with a final score of 10-1.
“Maddie MacGrandle has been better than good this year, she has been nothing but short of stellar,” said Christina Gwyn-Barton, head coach of Little Elm High. “What makes Maddie so dangerous is that she is not just a top-notch pitcher, but she is an exemplary athlete who is as lethal at the plate as she is on the mound.”
MacGrandle has made a verbal commitment to play softball on an athletic scholarship at Texas A&M University beginning in the fall of 2017.
