Jordyn Zoph – Utility
Zoph was a returning player for the Grandview softball team this spring and would have been one of the team’s top offensive threats. She has the versatility to play multiple positions and did an excellent job last year filling in where the team needed her due to injuries. Zoph was named All-District this past season after hitting .472 with a .635 on-base percentage and 18 RBI. She was named Academic All-State in 2019 and will earn that honor again this year. Zoph also took home the team award for Big Bat of the Year last season which was given to the team’s top hitter. She will be attending Mineral Area College in the fall where she will throw the javelin for the track and field team. Zoph later plans to attend SEMO before enrolling at Logan Chiropractic to become a chiropractor.

Hailey Harlow – Utility
Harlow was a returning player for the Grandview softball team this spring and was the type of player that could do just about anything you ask her to on the field.

Perhaps the most remarkable athletic accomplishment for Harlow is that she is the first five-sport athlete in Grandview school history.
