On Monday, the IU softball program announced two new players will be joining the dugout in incoming freshman Hope Grange and sophomore transfer Camryn Woodall from the University of Utah.

Grange, a Clinton, Indiana, native, is a four-time All-Conference selection from South Vermillion High School and a four-time Most Valuable Offensive Player. 

She holds her school’s career home run and batting average records and is a two-time 2A All-State selection. Grange’s senior season statistics featured a .461 batting average with 41 hits, 37 RBIs and four home runs on the road to her second straight sectional and conference titles.

She is the first NCAA Division I softball commit from South Vermillion High School.

Woodall, a Keller, Texas, native, played her freshman season for the University of Utah. She played in 14 games and started twice. 

She played high school softball at Keller High School, where she led her team to back-to-back 6A State Championships, earning the Championship game MVP award her senior season. That season, she had a batting average of .504 with 42 runs and 35 RBIs, earning her a PGF Southwest All-American award and MaxPreps High School All-American honors. 

The three-time All-State honoree isn’t the first Woodall to commit to the Hoosiers. 

Her sister, Caraline Woodall, committed to play for IU as a high school freshman back in 2016.
