Halfway through Fastpitch Northwest’s Prospect Evaluation Camp schedule and no records have been set. However, college coaches should be smiling at the quality of athletic performances displayed in Idaho and Oregon during June.
With nine PECs remaining in Oregon and Washington, there have been plenty of outstanding efforts and still plenty of time for records to fall.
In Washington, PECs remain to be held in Spokane (July 6), Tri-Cities (July 7), Ellensburg (July 8), Everett (July 13, Auburn (July 14) and Chehalis (July 15).
Remaining Oregon PECs are scheduled for July 21 (LaGrande), July 19 (Keizer) and July 20 (Gresham).
PECs have been held in Idaho (Pocatello, Twin Falls and Caldwell) and in Oregon (Medford, Springfield, Bend).
The top overall performer thus far is from Oregon – Teeghan Reams of Redmond (a 2022 graduate year from Ridgeview High School). She has three of the top test scores: overhand velocity (65 miles per hour), catcher pop-to-pop time (1.60) and batting exit velocity (75).
A pair of Idaho pitchers — Marissa Mauger and Jordan Torgerson — have recorded the fastest pitching times.
Fastpitch NW general manager Mike Brooks noted that invitations had been sent to players who were invited to the organization’s College Exposure Tournament to be held in Chehalis (WA), Aug. 2-3-4.
As good as Reams’ marks were, they were well off Fastpitch NW records. The records are:
Exit Velocity = 82 mph.
Pop to Pop = 1.50 seconds.
Home to First = 2.44 seconds.
Home to Home = 10.61 seconds.
Overhand Throw = 70 mph.
Power Ball = 51 feet.
20-Yard Sprint = 2.50 seconds.
If you’re record watching, keep your eyes open for the final nine PECs. Brooks noted that there were still player openings in several of the PECs.
In addition to Reams’ top efforts, other top 2021 marks include:
