The 6th annual Midwest Elite Camp was a resounding success this year. College coaches have been very impressed with the level of talent we have unveiled at the last several Midwest Elite Camps. And this one was no different. Almost 90 players competed throughout the day, and a great group of college coaches were in attendance watching them play.

We would never be able to list all the performances that really deserve mention here. However, there were several in each class that need to be written about. 2024 MI Maya Wondaal just continues to impress. The Chicago Wildcat SS is solid offensively and outstanding defensively. 2024 Avery Houlihan is also very, very good. The Illinois Chill SS is smooth with the glove and solid with the bat. Both these athletes have a real chance to immediately impact a top 50 RPI team as a freshman.

In the 2025 class, we have to mention three Beverly Bandit athletes who can just really swing the bat. Tru Medina (MI/athlete), Sydney Herrmann (1B), and Brooke Stang (OF) all were very impressive. It must be mentioned that Tru is one of the best athletes in the country and her Allister Index is elite. Hildie Dempsey showed her versatile skill set. Hildie can run, throw, defend, hit, and pitch. She is going to be an outstanding player at the next level who will help her school in many different ways. And finally, 2025 Pitcher Saylor Timmerman is fast becoming one of the nation’s premier recruits in the circle. As she continues to work and develop, she will be able to choose her school when that time comes around next year.

In the younger classes, Beverly Bandit SS Makayla Van Vossen was superb defensively and solid offensively. 2027 Erin Ryan (C/3B) has an outstanding skill set both offensively and defensively. And our lone 2028, Mackenzie Darsow, showed real ability in the circle. We will be interested in following her progress over the next few years.

Again, there were too many outstanding players in this event to mention them all. Many of them will be playing at the highest level of the college game when their time comes. Many thanks to Bill Conroy of the Beverly Bandits for making this great event possible. We really appreciate Bill’s friendship and all his efforts to make Midwest softball some of the best in the country.
