Cienega outfielder Taylor Lambert committed to play for Indiana last Wednesday.
Lambert batted .400 with four doubles and three triples to help lead Cienega to the Division II state championship last year. One of Lambert’s triples came in the championship game, resulting in two runs to help break open the game against Salpointe.
“There really are no words to describe the joy and excitement we feel about Taylor’s commitment to Indiana and what it means to our family,” her mother Brenda Lambert said.
“From the coaches, to her future teammates, to the facilities, Taylor knew right away that Indiana was the perfect fit for what she values in a school and where she wanted to continue to grow and take her softball skills to the next level.”
Lambert was an obvious AllSportsTucson.com First-Team All-Star selection last year along with five of her Bobcat teammates.
“Ever since her 8U team “Southeast Blaze” won the city Baja championship we saw a spark in her eye and her love for the game and to watch it come full circle to this point where she will continue to play into college is just something we could never have imagined when we signed her up to play for fun,” her mother added.
“We couldn’t be more proud of all her hard work, dedication, blood, sweat and tears. She literally has poured out to get herself to this point.”
