A player with a good bat will always have a spot on the softball diamond, and Daley Buchanan’s bat has landed her a spot on the Kaskaskia College Blue Angels.
Buchanan signed a letter of intent to join the KC softball squad last month, the result of a lot of hard work on the softball diamond over the years.
Playing summer softball at Kaskaskia College last year set the stage for Buchanan’s signing with the Blue Angels.
“I played a summer softball game at KC last summer, and Coach Crowell saw me play and approached me,” Buchanan said. “She said she liked me, so that made the decision easy.”
KC Coach Torey Crowell liked Buchanan for more than just her hitting ability.
“She is knowledgeable and very vocal, and I liked that,” Crowell said. “I look at her as a catcher, and I think she will be able to provide leadership on the field.”
Her versatility makes her valuable, as Nashville coach Dempsey Witte has learned over the last couple of years.
“Daley does a lot of things for us,” Witte said. “She has played a lot in the outfield here, but she also has come in and done a great job behind the plate for us as well.”
