The Jacksonville University signee was dominant in the circle with 972 Career strikeouts, breaking the school record of 725 set by Katie Chronister, who is now at the University of Florida.
Humphrey was just as dominant at the plate. She had a .478 batting average with two homeruns and 20 runs driven in for the 7-0 Hurricanes. Alissa allowed no runs in 47 innings pitched this season, including 106 strikeouts and only two walks, and finished with a 0.89 Career ERA.
Her favorite high school sports moment was a 14-inning battle last year against Lakewood Ranch, the number one team in the country. Humphrey had 26 strikeouts in the game. She will be a part of the Kinesiology Honors Program at Jacksonville University, where she will continue her athletic career.
