WARREN OH- Champion softball has been nothing but dominant over the last three seasons. The senior class of 2020 has a lot to do with the Golden Flashes success. Abbi Grace is one of those seniors looking for her fourth straight state championship. Unfortunately COVID-19 has put a stop to the 2020 season. The seniors of Champion won’t be able to compete for their four peat, but they’re still doing all they can to see the program win again in 2021.
Abbi Grace puts a lot of importance on helping the young players in the Champion program grow. From meeting the young kids after winning a state championship and signing softballs for them, to giving words of encouragement to the underclassmen. Grace continues to find ways with her fellow seniors to propel the program forward.
As far as her playing career, Abbi has been quite impressive. In 95 games played in the purple and gold, Grace has accumulated a .399 batting average. Her strength was in the field. As a catcher, she has a career fielding percentage of .933, and only committed 5 errors in her entire career. Grace was also never caught stealing in her career, with a perfect 18/18 mark.
Anthony Hartwig had the opportunity to catch up with Abbi via video chat. They discussed her team off the field, building the program’s future, and much more. Learn about another fantastic Golden Flashes senior in the latest Player Profile “Amazing Grace.”
