Callie Martin picked up her diploma from Raymore-Peculiar High School two months ago. She played her last softball game for the Panthers last October.
And she’s still collecting honors for her high school career.
Martin, an all-state catcher/outfielder and Missouri signee, was selected a 2017 Premier Girls Fastpitch All-American and will compete Friday in the PGH High School All-American Game in Irvine, Calif.
Martin was one of 47 players selected for the honor, one of several she has received recently. She was also selected a third-team All-American by USA Today and a second-team All-American by the National Fast Pitch Coaches Association. She was one the only high school player from Missouri among the 48 players selected to the NFCA’s three All-America Teams.
Martin, who plays for the DeMarini Aces club team, earned recognition after a stellar four-year career at Ray-Pec, where she holds numerous school records. She was named first-team all-state after recording a .577 batting average, a .620 on-base percentage, a 1.200 slugging percentage, 13 home runs and 40 RBIs her senior year. She also made the Hot 100 rankings by FloSoftball, which rated her the No. 45 overall prospect in the country.
Last June Martin was selected to the Missouri team in the annual MO-KAN All-Star Softball Series. She scored two runs to help Missouri sweep the series with 4-1 and 4-3 victories and win it for the third consecutive time.
