The Corning Community College softball team has landed its first recruit for the 2016 season and it comes in the form of Addison High School star pitcher Kiarra (Kiwi) Burrell. Burrell signed her NJCAA National Letter of Intent on March 6.
Burrell has had an outstanding high school career. Entering her senior season, she boasts a .536 batting average, has 19 homeruns, 131 RBI's and a .713 on-base percentage. From the circle, she has an impressive 43-4 record with a 1.09 ERA in 262.2 innings pitched with 334 strikeouts. She has been selected to the Steuben County League (SCL) All-SCL team four-times, she is a three-time SCL MVP, a four-time selection to the All-Section V first team and was the 2013 Corning Leader Player of the Year.
"I am thrilled to have Kiwi join our Red Barons family", said head coach Stacy Johnson. "She will definitely make an impact on both sides of the plate for us. She is a game-changer and is the kind of player that will carry on our high program standards and expectations. I expect big things from Kiwi and this is a great start to our 2015 recruiting class."
