Softball Signee Blair Named Houston Area Player of the Year

June 18, 2008


Kansas softball signee Sarah Blair was named the Houston Chronicle’s Player of the Year after helping Katy Taylor High School to the 5A Region III semifinals.

A versatile threat on the diamond, Blair was one of the most feared pitchers and hitters in the Houston area in her senior campaign at Katy Taylor. The soon-to-be Kansas Jayhawk was 15-8 in the circle pitching 161 innings, striking out 149 and walking only six. She was also the team’s best offensive player, hitting .438.

In 2008, the two-time team MVP was a unanimous district most valuable pitcher and selected to the TGCA Texas All-Star Team.

Blair will join KU for the 2008-09 season along with fellow signees Marissa Ingle (Olathe, Kan.) and Kelsey Alsdorf (Littleton, Colo.).
