The new Iowa Women's Softball League received a nice boost Monday when Brittney Roby and Brooke Craig from the successful University of Northern Iowa softball team joined the program.
A total of 31 college softball players have now joined the league, including eight players from NCAA Division I schools.
Roby has been an outstanding hitter at every rung of her softball career. She began her prep career by batting .642 as an eighth grader at Twin Cedars High School in Bussey and then hit .568, .655, .634 and .651 during the next four seasons.
Roby, an outfielder, collected 12 homers and 133 RBIs in high school and was named first team all-state for five straight years from 2010 through 2014.

Roby was named a first team NJCAA All-American during both of her campaigns at DMACC. Remarkably, she struck out only one time in 2016 and struck out only two times in 2015.
Roby is currently a junior at UNI with two more years of eligibility. Read more...
