Salpointe pitcher Brianna Aguilar-Beaucage signed with Grand Canyon on Monday night. The Salpointe senior batted .412 last year with nine doubles and 16 RBIs. She was 11-1 from the circle with 99 strikeouts in only 86 innings of work.
The Lancers made it to the Division II state championship game last year, falling to Cienega 9-2.
“We have a lot of younger kids but they all have positive attitudes so I’m really excited about this year,” Aguilar-Beaucage said about her senior year at Salpointe.
“Playing with Grand Canyon is exciting but I know I still have a lot of work to put in to be able to play when I get there,” she added.
“It’s nice to know I have a home and the players and coaches that are there are great. I can’t wait”
Her mother, Bettina, is a member of the All-Time Academic All-Big Ten Softball Team (Ohio State) and her aunt Marcie Aguilar played for the University of Arizona and is proudly listed in the Encyclopedia of Women and Baseball from her days with the Colorado Silver Bullets.
Aguilar-Beaucage is the first player from the AZ Impact Gold organization to sign a letter to play in college according to her head coach Shanna Biggan.
