Pride acquires 4 time All-American and 2017 All-NPF member Savhanna Jaquish from Chicago Bandits
The Chicago Bandits have agreed to trade catcher Savhanna Jaquish to the USSSA Pride in exchange for cash considerations, teams officials announced Friday morning.
Jaquish, who earned All-NPF honors during her rookie year in Chicago, batted .322 with three homeruns and a team-high 29 RBI. The LSU graduate was one of two first round selections for the Bandits in the 2017 NPF Draft.
Along with playing catcher, Jaquish is versatile and can play both third and first base. She will be a great addition to an already talented infield and will provide another right-handed powerful bat to the lineup.
The 2017 USSSA Pride finished in first place in regular season last year and came in second at the Cowles Cup Championship. The 2018 USSSA Pride will be back at the USSSA Space Coast Stadium for the 2018 season.
