Former San Manuel standout pitcher Jazmyne Waddell signed on to play for New Mexico State this past week. Waddell led the Miners to a 19-6 record last year including a 17-2 record in power-ranking games and a runner-up finish in the 1A Conference for the second year in a row.
Waddell committed to play for Pima after her sophomore season but her bat and her success in the circle caught the eye of longtime Aggie coach Kathy Rodolph, “I’m excited to add Jazmyne to the Aggie Family,” Rudolph said in a release. “Jaz is a very talented left-handed pitcher that will do great things here.”
The New Mexico State roster includes former Sahuarita standout Hailey Tanori and former Sabino standout Riley Carley.
HOW ABOUT BOTH?!?!
Jazmyne Waddell is the newest member of the Aggie Family #AggieUp
