Last weekend, Karissa Hamilton became the first Miss Softball in the history of the program at Shelbyville. Hamilton will be taking her talents to the SEC next season as she is a committed Kentucky Wildcat.

In her time at Shelbyville, Hamilton played Center Field, Catcher, and Third Base. When up to bat, Hamilton has been known to pull off some magic. In Shelbyville’s game against Bedford North Lawrence during Semi-State, Hamilton launched a walk-off bomb that had them secured as one of the final four teams in the state.
