Kailee Surprise Shaver Commits to Canisius

The Factory is proud to announce that Kailee Surprise-Shaver, a 2020 graduate from Mira Mesa High School, has verbally committed to continue her softball and academic career at Canisius College in Buffalo, NY. Kai is an outstanding student at Mira Mesa where she is graduating with an academic distinction award and has lettered in field hockey, ran varsity track, and played varsity softball. She is also an assistant coach for the Mira Mesa Girls Softball 8U team.

Kai is a middle infielder and outfielder who brings speed to the game. She is a speedy slapper who can hit from both sides of the plate and has lead The Factory 16U Gold with the most stolen bases. She is a current member of The Factory 18U Premier team. She has had a very successful career playing for The Factory since the age of 12. This past season she was a member of The Factory 16U Gold team that finished 2nd place in the TCS Colorado Sparkler 16U Division. She has played on many successful teams and is a very versatile player. Her passion for the game, athleticism, and speed were something that caught the eye of the head coach at Canisius. Kai has had several opportunities to continue her academic and softball career but has ultimately chosen Canisius to pursue a degree in political science.

Kai is extremely excited to become a Canisius Griffin and play softball at the Division 1 level under the tutelage of head coach Kim Griffin in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference.

Congratulations Kailee from all of us at The Factory!

Tori Denosta Commits to MIT

The EC Bullets would like to congratulate Tori Denosta (2021 – MI/OF) from the EC Bullets California on her recent commitment to continue her education and softball career at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).

Tori is an outstanding student-athlete at Scripps Ranch High School where she is finishing her junior year. She currently holds a 4.6 cumulative GPA and has been on the Principal’s Honor Roll for the last five consecutive semesters. She recently tested on the SAT and scored a 1490 with a near perfect 780 score in math.

Athletics have been a big part of Tori’s growth and development as well. At Scripps, she has received numerous awards and accolades. She was the team’s Defensive MVP as a freshman, starting second base her sophomore year on a team that captured the CIF Division 1 championship and Western league championship.

Tori has competed in top national competition with the EC Bullets California for the last couple of years and grown her softball skills exponentially. She has been recognized for her skills with invitations to participate in several events including last summer when she participated in the Zoom into June Academic games. She was a member of the Bullets 16U team that finished T13 place at last year’s PGF Nationals held in Huntington Beach.

Tori had multiple opportunities to continue her education and softball career. MIT is an outstanding choice and we look forward to watching you play and grow as an Engineer!

Congratulations and keep up the hard work!

EC Bullets California
