In softball circles, Samantha Krahling is known as a five-tool player. She can run like the wind, she can hit for average, she can hit for power, she’s an excellent fielder and she’s got a cannon where most players have their right arms.
Because of her versatility, Krahling is also the type of player that you can build a program around.
This week, Krahling continued to star for the Palmyra softball team. The senior catcher led the Cougars to a 2-1 week that featured triumphs over Mechanicsburg and Lower Dauphin.
Following a 1-3 start related to transition, Krahling and the Cougars have really picked up steam. Currently, Palmyra stands at 6-4 overall and is very much in the discussion about the District Three Class AAAAA postseason.
A four-year starter, Krahling is on the back end of a marvelous scholastic career in Palmyra. Not only is she one of the top performers in Lebanon County softball, she’s also one of the finest players to ever don the orange and black.
The physically-gifted Krahling has committed to continuing her academic and athletic careers at Rutgers, a member of the Big Ten conference.
