PRESENTATION SLUGGER AND HOOP STAR INKS WITH THE PATRIOTS
St. Catharine, Ky.-Aliyah Johnson from Louisville, Kentucky has become the most recent dual sport athlete in the St. Catharine College Patriots’ stable.
Johnson, a Presentation Academy graduate, has committed to bring her talents in both softball and basketball to St. Catharine College in August. “It’s always good to get a kid who’s willing to work hard in two sports” said Head Softball Coach Holly Smith. “Aliyah is going to bring a youthful energy to our team that is always beneficial.”
The 5’ 8” shortstop will look to help solidify a Patriot infield that could be missing a few key parts with the graduation of Taylor Steff and the absence of a normal shortstop. However, on the basketball court, the long winged freshman will look to use her talents to battle for a roster spot on a rebuilt and talented Patriot roster.
Johnson will join the softball Patriots first in August when they begin their fall season before making the transition to basketball in October.
