Personal Statement

My name is Karah Parker and I am a dual sport dedicated student athlete at Travelers Rest High School.  I love to compete in all sports and play basketball, volleyball and softball.  My favorite sport and passion is playing softball for both my high school and travel ball team Carolina Thunder.  Playing softball at an early age of 5, which started in local Little League, has developed me into a well rounded athlete who loves the game.  I've been playing travel ball with Carolina Thunder since I was 10 years old and started as a varsity player my freshman year high school.  I've been a committed and loyal player for Carolina Thunder going on 7 years now.  This season I'm excited to share that I received SC 4A All-State Player Award this season as a junior as well as All Region Player Award two years in a row.  I played both Varsity and JV softball my freshman year and was awarded JV Defensive MVP noted a no-hitter pitched.  Travelers Rest High School won the 4A District Championship and finished second place in Region this season.  It was the first time since 2009 our school has won district championship. 

I am a committed, hard working, and loyal player to my team and a leader as well.  I was voted team Captain for JV basketball team my sophomore year and consider myself as a leader on the field and court in any sport.  Skills and athleticism that I have developed over the past 10 years have enabled me to become a versatile player being able to play multiple positions successfully.  My primary positions in both travel and high school are shortstop and pitcher but I also have experience playing 2nd base, and 3rd base competitively as well as catcher on several occasions due to injuries.     

Playing multiple sports in high school as well as year round weight training and conditioning has helped me to become faster, stronger, and increased agility.  As of now, verified times at the MaxBat Combine: 40yrd dash=5.63s, pro-shuttle=4.65s, Home to 1B: 2.95s (contact w/ball), Home to 2B: 6.0s (contact w/ball), Overhand Throw: 59mph, Bat Velocity: 65mph.  With the upcoming year in high school, I will continue to build speed, strength, endurance and agility.  Overhand throwing and pitching speed will also continue to increase as I continue training.  Softball skills are also continued to be learned through continued pitching lessons, hitting lessons and coaching instruction from high school, travel ball and college coaches from camps and combines.  I will be attending several college camps and combines this summer.  I am so excited to start my journey as a collegiate student athlete playing softball in 2020.
