Hi, my name is Jalaya Ries and I am a dedicated, driven, hardworking student and athlete, from Louisiana, Missouri. I have been playing softball since I was a little girl and have grown to love and have a passion for the game. This year I will be moving on from Middle School and continue on to play for our Louisiana High School. I also play for Eastern Missouri RiverRats 14U travel team, who I have been playing with for the last 3 years and joined the Troy Missouri Drillers this year. With my schedule I also participate in softball camp, basketball camp and weights throughout the week. My current speed is 19.28 MPH. I am a teachable athlete and I am always willing to learn new things to better myself. In my free time I love to read and paint. My academics are very important to me. My goal is to have several colleges to choose from to ensure that I will be able to accomplish the goal of getting the best education while playing the highest level of competition.
