Choteau's Achenbach, Glaicer's Williams Enjoy Successful Seasons in the Circle

Posted: Updated:

Choteau Ace pitcher Tristin Achenbach has been putting up ridiculous numbers in the circle ever since she was a Freshman. Before her Junior year ended she verbally committed to continue her softball career at the University of Montana. Achenbach had a fantastic state tournament performance, going 4-0 with 57 strikeouts, two no-hitters and a perfect game in the championship. Achenbach will transfer to CMR for her senior year because her dad took a job with the Great Falls Public School District. But before she dons a Rustler jersey, she says she's glad to be a future Lady Griz.

"I really love the coaches there. I really love the facilities," says Achenbach. "I also really love the school and what they have to offer. It's really nice to know I have it all figured out for the most part. I'm glad that I've made a decision. They're a second year program and they're already having a lot of success. So that really sealed the deal right there"

As for the best pitcher in class AA, Glacier's Ali Williams will be going to Carroll College. Williams helped the wolf pack win a state title as a junior and reached the title game again last week where she was out-dueled by her future Carroll teammate Courtney Schroeder of CMR. Williams led the state in nearly every pitching category, including wins, ERA, strikeouts and no-hitters. She was very impressed with Carroll during her recruiting visit.

"Well I really liked the coach's philosophy and the girls were all super welcoming towards me," says Williams. "They were all very supportive of my decision. I really like their pre-med program. I'm going to major in biology while I'm there. I think it was just a good fit. Their whole philosophy of being a family as a team and doing things together and their whole welcoming appeal. It was just appealing to me."
