Offensively, Kara uses a square setup and a hands back approach. She uses a small stride and maintains centered balance through her swing.

08/03/2014 - College PREP - Albany, NY Kara is a tall, junior right-handed pitcher with a developing skill set. On the mound, Kara uses a fastball, change up, rise ball combination to attack each batter. She keeps the ball in the low 50's with her change up coming in around 42 MPH. Kara does a good job keeping her change up low in the zone and making it sink at the front of the plate. Her rise ball has sharp late break, but will be more effective if she works to get under the ball more. Also, by keeping her elbow in tighter to her body and focusing on the wrist snap, Kara will get more whip on the ball. Offensively, Kara uses a square setup and a short, square stride to make a positive move to the ball. She is an aggressive hitter that maintains centered balance while driving through contact. Kara does a good job of staying inside the ball on every pitch. She consistently hits hard line drives through the middle of the field. By working to drive off of her back instep and finishing with her toe pointed to the ground, Kara will transfer more weight through the ball. Overall, Kara is a developing pitcher that will continue to train and grow as a competitor.
