McDonald County’s McCall signs to Pitt State softball

Madeline McCall is an All-State pitcher for the Mustangs.

ANDERSON. Mo. – McDonald County High School senior Madeline McCall signed on Friday afternoon to continue her softball career with the Pittsburg State Gorillas.

McCall is a 3X 1st team All-Region selection and was also 1st team All-State and the Big 8 Pitcher of the Year in her senior season with the Mustangs.

“There’s no ceiling on her potential, especially with the way that she works,” says McDonald County head softball coach Heath Alumbaugh, “We refer to her as a gym rat. I don’t know if there’s a gym rat in softball, but she’s here all the time on her own putting in extra work. As long as she continues that, there’s no telling where she’ll get to at the college level. We’re excited to watch and see.”

“It mentally prepared me for the next level,” McCall says of playing at McDonald County, “My coaches were great and they worked with me. All the countless hours we spent in the barn working on pitching and hitting…I’m really thankful for all I got here.”
