 Four-year letterwinner... Led Vacaville High to Monticello Empire League championships during her senior and sophomore seasons... Ended the 2015-16 season with 18 wins, 225 strikeouts and a 1.84 ERA... Those stats are key reasons why the MEL named Kibby as its Pitcher of the Year... Earned All-MEL first team honors all four seasons... Won 13 games, struck out 104 batters and posted a 1.25 ERA as a junior... Collected 29 wins, 233 strikeouts and held a miniscule 0.62 ERA as a sophomore... MEL Pitcher of the Year and MaxPreps All-America selection in 2014... Finished her freshman year with eight victories and 152 strikeouts.

PERSONAL: Oldest of Barbara and Tom Kibby's two children... Kelsey is her younger sibling... AASA Merrida 1 Gold (Woodland) is her club team... Competed for AASA Merrid from 2014-16... Her club team finished third at the PGF Nationals in 2014, seventh at the 18U Nationals in 2015 and fifth the following season... Not many people know that she bakes a dozen cookies on a frequent basis... Graduating high school with a 4.2 GPA is her proudest personal accomplishment... Former teammate Madilyn (Bubba) Nickles is the best athlete she has competed against... Winning a sectional title in her sophomore year is her career sports highlight... Would choose volleyball if she could play another sport at UC Davis... Binge watching on Netflix and baking are her hobbies... Chose UC Davis because she wanted to positively impact the softball program.
