IZZY’S POV: Player Spotlight on Blaise Biringer


Hi Wildcat Fans!

This week I am going to highlight one of my teammates and closest friends, Blaise Biringer.

Blaise is from Nogales, Ariz., and went to Cienega High School. Blaise and I played together on Thundercats when we were about 10 years old and then we ended up playing together again on the Suncats. At shortstop, third base, and second base not a single ball would get past her.

She will always find a way to get on base. She is great on the field and even better off of it. Blaise is one of the best friends I have ever had. Here are some of the questions I asked Blaise:

Who are your biggest supporters?
My biggest supporter are my mom and dad

Chips: Takis
Soda: Coke or Sprite
Candy: Gushers
Food: Chicken alfredo, seafood boils or posole

What does an off day look like for you?
I take my off days seriously. I spend time with my family and rest up. My grandma usually comes on our off days.

Why do you play softball?
I think one of my biggest reasons why I play softball is because I have always wanted to inspire small-town girls to chase after their dreams. I play for Nogales, and the people there.

What’s your major?
My major is Communications with Sports Management minor.

What do you want to do after softball/school?
After softball/school I don’t have a set goal yet, but half of me wants to be around sports still and half of me wants to go into Real Estate and owning my own AirBnB business.

How would you compare SEC and Pac-12 softball?
The Pac-12 was the foundation of softball. It’s where it all started! Did you know that the first team to ever win the title East of the Mississippi was Michigan in ’08. The SEC has always been known as a power football conference but now softball is just as prominent. Pac-12 softball is the traditional prestigious softball conference but the SEC is now the most prominent conference.

Best softball memory so far?
My best softball memory for sure is playing at the World Series. I have always dreamed of going there as a kid and the feeling of being there was so overwhelming in a positive way. It made me emotional!

What’s your Starbucks order?
Venti pink drink, 2 pumps of vanilla, no inclusions

What’s an essential part of your daily routine?
An essential part of my daily routine is prayer and spending time with God. I think having this as an essential part of my day has helped overcome anxiety, stress, and insecurities. Playing a sport that is based on failure, sometimes I need a reminder that I am more than just a softball player. I am a woman of Christ and more worthy than a stat.
