Tuesday, Nov. 7, senior Ally Anderson signed her letter of intent to play softball at Des Moines Area Community College (DMACC). Her parents Mike and Kim Anderson, high school coach Terry Hinzmann, and hitting coach and recruiting coordinator of DMACC Daron Harris all attended the signing.

Anderson has played softball throughout high school, starting in the circle since her freshman year.  Anderson has always wanted to play at the collegiate level since she was in 8th grade.

Daron Harris is in his 7th year coaching with the DMACC softball team, and has had very good success so far, with the Bears finishing in the top 10 four times in the last five years. Harris said, “It’s a perfect fit for us, we know she’s a hard worker.” The DMACC coaching staff is excited to have Anderson signed and ready to play for them in the upcoming years.

It’s a perfect fit for us, we know she’s a hard worker.”

— DMACC Coach Harris

Harris said “She has great command,” with all her pitches. Which is something that isn’t easy to teach.

Anderson said, “I really like the coaches, the program, and the way they do everything. So I think it will be a good fit.”

In 2017 Anderson had 127 at bats, eight home runs, and 58 runs batted in. Anderson had a .408 batting average, a .866 slugging percentage, and an on-base percentage of .538.

Anderson in the pitching circle was just as impressive. She had 36 starts, with a record of 27-9. Anderson faced 928 batters, striking out 237.

Anderson plans to study to become a veterinarian.
