Carda On Team USA Softball

One of the top pitcher ever to come out of our area was Ally Carda. She was a star at Pleasant Grove, leading the Eagles to the 2009 Section championship. Then she went to UCLA and was a key part of several excellent clubs there. In 2014 she was a finalist for the top collegiate softball player in the entire country.

Carda is still playing, for Team USA. Here is a link to her page on the USA site.
