A 5-foot-7 first baseman/third baseman, Stribling hit .257 this past fast-pitch season for head coach Susan Frazier’s 7-11 Division 5-5A runners-up. The defensive standout also compiled a .967 fielding percentage playing primarily at first base.
Last fall in her final slow-pitch campaign for MHS, Stribling batted .437 and fielded at a .988 clip in helping lead the 21-13 Lady Wildcats to the Class 5A South State championship and state runner-up finish for the second consecutive year.
During her junior slow-pitch season, Stribling hit .303 with 20 runs batted in as a member of Meridian’s state runner-up ballclub. Having competed in varsity softball since the ninth grade, she has also participated in the State Games of Mississippi.
An active member of the Boys & Girls Club of Lauderdale County, Stribling is the daughter of Willie Hart and Phyllis Stribling of Meridian.
