She saved her best for the postseason, winning five straight games to push the unranked Lady Catamount’s into the second round of the Class 4A state play-offs.

Blackwood and fellow signee Sidney Hooper give Lady Govs head coach Stephanie Paris a pair of top hurlers to build her program over the next four years.

“Allie has great movement on the ball,” Paris said. “I see her complementing two of our other pitchers who throw hard. She’s going to be a great addition to our pitching staff for the 2014 season.”
