As coaches at Cooper, @allsport71
and I are working hard to keep building our program. Part of that is getting our players recognition and exposure. With that I wanted to talk about our players here on BGP. First up, Allana Matteson is a sophomore 3rd baseman for Cooper, with this being her 4th year as a varsity starter. A two-time Honorable Mention all-conference player, Matteson hit over .400 for the second year in a row last year, finishing at .412 with 2 homers and 35 runs batted in over 26 games. Impressive stat was her strikeouts, cleanup hitter who struck out only 4 times in over 100 plate appearances. She is only a couple of RBI's away from being the all-time leader at Cooper. Good third baseman who has a cannon for an arm, she has worked hard on her defense over the last couple of years. She's a great young lady who has a work ethic that is unmatched - she is constantly working on her game to get better. Luckily for us we have her for 3 more years at Cooper, where if she continues progressing she'll finish as the career leader in almost all offensive categories.
