Standing 5 feet tall, Maize’s Jurgensen towers over competition

MAIZE, Kansas – Generating amazing numbers this year, prep slugger Allie Jurgensen’s leading the area in several categories in prep softball.

Coming off a doubleheader sweep over Campus on Thursday, the five foot standout has a batting average near .600, she’s also tops in Ark Valley Chisholm Trail Division I in home runs. Outside of that, Jurgensen leads in slugging percentage, RBIs and on base percentage.

Jurgensen told KSN, “With my shortness and height people definitely underestimate me.” She added, my strike zone-due to height can be an advantage.

Maize coach Jenny Meirowsky says, “I don’t know that anything can hold Allie back, she’s having a great season and she’s one of my hardest working girls.”

Closing in on the postseason, Maize is currently ranked Top 25 statewide.
