LIBERAL, Kan. – Seward County softball standout Jullian Atteberry has signed with Division I University of South Carolina Upstate to continue her softball career.
Atteberry has her name written all over the Seward County record books. She is second in career runs scored (118) and bases on ball (48), while being tied for third in home runs (27), seventh in RBI (108) and ninth in doubles (28). This past season, she had the fourth highest batting average (.443), runs scored (68) and home runs (16) in Lady Saints history. She also ranks third in single season base hits (90) and tenth in bases on balls (25).
Following a Second Team All-Jayhawk West selection her freshman season, Atteberry’s explosive sophomore season netted her a First Team All-Jayhawk West selection at shortstop. She was also named the Jayhawk West Player of the Week from March 11-17 after batting .577 over an eight game stretch, while knocking in 11 RBI.
Atteberry will join a Spartan team in Spartanburg, South Carolina that went 35-19 a season ago. She will look to give the USC Upstate the extra edge they need after dropping a close game in the ASUN Softball Championship. Atteberry will play for Chris Hawkins, who will enter his 25th season at Upstate and ranks among the 15 winningest active coaches in NCAA Division I.
