Kylie Kent, sophomore at Cave Spring High School, has recently been selected to compete in the Queen of Diamonds Showcase South (QDSS) at Winthrop University August 25th and 26th. This is the 6th Event for the Queen of Diamonds in the South. The QDSS is part of the Queen of Diamonds Showcase events which are the largest fastpitch softball showcases of its kind in the U.S.
This event continues to attract athletes from 30+ states and 2 Canadian Provinces. Its’ sister showcase, the Queen of Diamonds North, is in its 18th season. Both events have near 2000 applicants in which 264+ athletes are selected. This showcase is very unique as athletes actually ‘apply to’ this event individually and are selected based on many criteria ranging from ability, potential, academics, grad year, coaches requests and referrals.
Kylie plays shortstop for the Knights varisty softball team where she is coming off a strong freshman year in which she earned second team all River Ridge District honors. Kylie also plays for the Virginia Madness travel softball team based out of Roanoke.
