Allison Royalty, P | Athletics Mercado (2020, Arizona State)

The Arizona State-committed 2020 right-hander, went 4-0 with a 0.30 ERA and 48 strikeouts in 23.2 innings, tossed a one-hitter with 14 Ks to lead the Athletics to a 1-0 victory over Georgia Impact-Lewis in the PGF 18U Premier national championship game.

MVP PLAYER
