07/23/2013 - College PREP - Watertown, WI Kiana is a steady young C with a developing skill set. Defensively, she blocks with good anticipation and body control, is consistent with her throws and will benefit from improving her balance, footwork to throw and arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, Kiana uses a crouched set up with a back load, a long stride and keeps her weight back before launching her hands to the ball. Long at times, her swing recovers because of good bat speed and produces solid contact to the pull side. She is consistent with her swing and should continue to work on shortening her stride, keeping her hands back and seeing the ball deeper to allow her to better access the opposite field. Overall, Kiana will see pop times improve as she commits to a detailed drill package and pays attention to details in her preparation; she has the athletic ability to continue to develop and the coachable approach that coaches at the next level are seeking in potential players.
