Meet A'Niya. A'Niya is from Gallatin, TN and has been a key player for HYPE Fastpitch since we started our team.

A'Niya is incredibly athletic and is ready and willing to play any position we ask. She is one of the most consistent players we have, both offensively and defensively. She works hard and we can always count on her to make something happen. She has recently stepped up to be a leader on our team and has taken charge in the infield, communicating and encouraging her teammates to do their best.

A'Niya plays basketball as well as softball, excelling in both sports. She will be a freshman this year and has already made the high school softball and basketball teams.

A'Niya has goals to play Division I softball for University of Florida or University of Georgia and one day open her own athletic facility. We believe that A'Niya can do anything she puts her mind to and we are here to help her reach her dreams! #Hypefastpitch #softball #ugasoftball #floridasoftball #gallatintn #sumnercounty
