AVERY HODGE: EXTRA ELITE 100 CLASS OF 2022'S
T-9—Avery Hodge, SS/OF, Impact Gold HTX (Oklahoma)
Avery is the old-school multiple sport athlete (softball, volleyball, basketball and track) who excels in everything she does because of her speed—2.6 home-to-first camp times–and her aggressive, fearless style of play whether she’s making a diving catch in the dirt or stretching out an extra base hit. The Oklahoma athlete has an advanced knowledge of the game and excellent instincts where she knows intuitively how to get the extra advantage to put her team in a position to win. Avery has played up with girls two years older ever since she joined Kelli Jacoby’s Texas Aces 10U team when she was eight-years-old before the program recently joined the Impact Gold organization. A natural leadoff batter because of her skills at getting on base, Avery plays the middle infield and centerfield spots equally well and had Big 12 and SEC interest starting in the 6th grade. She first got noticed by Oklahoma in 2016 at the Colorado Sparkler 14U Power Pool and was offered at an OU Elite Camp on September 17, 2017 and committed the next day.
