More about Georgia Biggs…
I started playing softball in my home town at the age of 6. I played in Delburne attending and becoming a finalist in many tournaments and “C” Provincials.
After my final year of U 14 I made the decision to travel to the city to play “A” ball. I played my first year of U-16 on Kevin Martin’s U-16 Edmonton Warriors team,
where we attended ‘A’ provincials. We did well enough to secure a spot at Westerns Canadian Finals where we won a bronze medal. I was also awarded the coaches award that year.
My first position was pitching and my second was outfield. The next year I was pulled up to play underaged on Grant Taylor’s U-18 Edmonton Warriors team. We did well enough
at ‘A’ Provincials to get to go to U18 Canadian Women's nationals. In the fall of 2017 I played on Saskatchewan 222’s softball travel team. The same fall I also made Alberta Athletics Elite,
this team's goal is to expose players to college coaches for the purpose of receiving post-secondary scholarships. I decided that I would become a pitcher only in order to focus my skill in
one area. I have been on this team for two years and have received incredible training from a 5 time American National winning coach from California. I have competed and been a finalist in
the states of Florida, California, Arizona and Washington. I recently signed my national letter of intent to Blinn College a Division I Jr. College in Brenham Texas. I have received a scholarship
for pitching and plan on attending in fall of 2019.
