Hi, my name is Jada Bolhuis but my softball nickname is J Money (J$). My travel softball team is the 18U Elite in Wyoming, Michigan. I am in my Senior year in Otsego, Michigan and graduate in 2022. I get on base with a home to 1st Bat Drop Speed of 2.65 depending on start time method.
Individual Awards; FRESHMAN -1st Team All-State, 1st Team All-Conference, 1st Team All-District, (3) Michigan High School Athletic Association all-time history records. https://www.mhsaa.com/Sports/Softball/Record-Book/Individual-Records (Sophomore season canceled due to COVID-19)-ALL TIME SINGLES, Single season hits 91 (4th most hits in MI history), Runs scored 75 (14th most runs scored in MI history), Stolen bases 35, OBP% .726, BA% Record .674 (15th highest batting average in MI history); Regional Track 100M time (12.93)
Team Award; Otsego Bulldogs were an Academic All-State Team.
As one of the lead-off hitters, in addition to getting on base, I advance runners and touch home plate using my speed and accuracy. I adjust my hitting based on the defense and will bunt, slap, full swing or any other type of hit I am trained to do. My specialty is not to hit balls out of the park but to create chaos with steals and aggressive base running. Playing second base and outfield, I use my speed, quick response and experience to get the out. I am not afraid to dive, throw from my knees or outrun a player if that is what it takes. It's easy to stay positive when you are winning but I help my team to stay positive even when things are not going our way.
I take pride in my grades (cumulative GPA 3.94) and stats which show my hard work. I feel lucky to have great parents, coaches, teachers and trainers to help me learn and continue to grow. I am self-motivated and look forward to playing for a school where I continue to learn, remain challenged and have fun with my high energy. I hope you consider me as you put your winning team together. -J$
