Potosi’s Sami Huck To Stay In-State, Play Softball At Mizzou

(Potosi) Sami Huck of the Potosi Trojans has decided to continue her softball career at the University of Missouri. The senior says she always wanted to end up in Columbia.

Huck was persistent in her efforts to get noticed by Mizzou.

Despite knowing where she wanted to play college softball for most of her life, Huck says she was nervous when the Tigers contacted her the first chance N.C.A.A. rules allowed them to.

Huck tells us what her official visit to Columbia was like.

Twice named to the Class 2 first-team all-state team, last spring Huck recorded a sub-one E.R.A. while striking out 300 batters in just 136.2 innings pitched and collected a .579 batting average and zero strikeouts at the plate. She talks about her plans to be a two-way player at the next level.

Huck tells us what her high school coach, Tyler Beers, has meant to her.

Potosi finished the spring season 26-4 and lost in the Class 2 state championship to Skyline in extra innings 1-0. Huck threw 28 strikeouts, a state championship game record.
