Bellmont Head Softball Coach Sandy Busick:
Macy and our catcher, Tori Miller, call all pitches and work the batters themselves. They have the best view, and both are highly knowledgeable.
Macy is a competitive and driven young lady. She was inspired to pitch in softball at a young age when she watched other struggling pitchers. Instead of steering clear of something so challenging, she chased it. She then can define an exact 10u game where she was shelled. She hated the feeling and has worked hard with pitching coaches and her dad to be the best pitcher that she can be.
Macy just moved to Indiana a few years ago where her parents were both born and raised. While we undoubtedly love the fact that she is a part of our softball program, she is an addition to Bellmont High School that the teachers and her peers love. She is a hard worker in academics and track as well. She is focused on personal goals and dreams, but manages time to be social. The best feature Macy has is that she is very grounded and she puts her team first. She is aware that the 8 players behind her have in fact worked hard themselves over the last several years and that defense gives her insurance in her own confidence as she delivers pitches on the mound.
Bellmont is in Decatur, Indiana, hometown of ‘Hoosiers’ Director David Alspaugh, on the Ohio-Indiana border in Adams County. Another county pitcher from #1 2A South Adams, located in Berne, Indiana, Katelin Augsburger has 173 strikeouts in 76 innings, with 12 wins for the 15-0 Starfires this season, she just had 20 K’s in her last outing.
