Eaton is entering her senior season at Heritage High School, where she is already a two-time all-conference player under the tutelage of Angela Ramiro, playing both corner infield spots. She’s one of four players from Heritage heading to play Division I softball next in 2015 – the most in the school’s five-year history – after leading the program to the Sunbelt League championship in 2013.

“She’s going to be an impact player for us,” Paris said. “She’s got a huge bat and is going to be a big offensive threat in the lineup. She’s going to be great for us at the corners and she’ll have to be in the lineup somewhere because she’s such an offensive threat.”

In 2012, Eaton’s first varsity season, she hit .370 with four home runs and 13 RBI. Those numbers were bumped up in 2013, with Eaton hitting a robust .438 with three home runs and 24 RBI and an All-Sunbelt Tournament team spot.

“She can be a significant RBI threat and that’s what we like about her,” Paris said. “She’s another of the players we’re bringing in that we know what they’re capable of and expect them to play right away.”

The daughter of William and Jennifer Eaton, Juliet plans to major in health and human performance at Austin Peay.
