Incoming Indiana softball player Aly VanBrandt wins Michigan’s Miss Softball award


Indiana softball rising freshman Aly VanBrandt received the 2023 Michigan Miss Softball Award for position players from the Michigan High School Softball Coaches Association, per an IU Athletics release Thursday. 

The shortstop had an outstanding career at Whiteford High School in Ottawa Lake, Michigan, breaking five school records and helping lead the team to the Michigan High School Softball Coaches Association Division 3 championship game this past season. 

VanBrandt was a first team All-State selection who finished her high school career with 220 hits, 202 runs and a .641 batting average, all of which were school records. 

VanBrandt, who will join the rest of the Hoosiers in Bloomington next month, becomes the third player and second position player from Monroe County, Michigan to earn Miss Softball.
