The last 48 hours since Alabama was eliminated from the NCAA Tournament have been a whirlwind.
Monday evening, Abby Doerr and Jenna Lord entered the transfer portal. Then, Tuesday afternoon, Montana Fouts confirmed that she would be returning to use her fifth year of eligibility with specific support for Alabama head coach Patrick Murphy. Catcher Ally Shipman also confirmed she would be returning for a fifth year. (Alabama got Shipman and third baseman Ashley Prange from the transfer portal prior to the 2021 season.)
Shortly after Fouts’ posts on social media, Extra Inning Softball reported that Lexi Kilfoyl, Dallis Goodnight and Savannah Woodard have also entered the transfer portal. Goodnight has already removed Alabama softball from her bio on Instagram. Later on Tuesday evening, it was also confirmed that second base Megan Bloodworth had entered the portal.
Kilfoyl is one of the most talented pitchers in the country, but battled injuries throughout her Crimson Tide career. She threw a perfect game against Georgia on April 4 and tossed an eight-inning gem in a win against Florida on April 10. The junior pitcher got roughed up in her next two SEC outings, including allowing seven earned runs in 1.1 innings against Texas A&M on April 23. It would be the last time she pitched in 2022.
For the rest of the season, her status was day to day with a foot and hip injury. Kilfoyl finished the season with a 9-3 record in 18 appearances with a 2.36 ERA. The pitcher also took some at-bats early in the season before injuring her foot and hit .308 with a home run and three RBIs. She will have two years of eligibility remaining.
Chandler Athletic Field Rental
We have dozens of fields and courts available for rent throughout the City. Fields vary in size and sporting specialty from tennis to cricket to soccer to basketball and everything in between.
Application, Policy, and Procedures
Rainouts – In an effort to help reduce unnecessary repairs and maintenance to City-owned fields, fields will be considered unplayable if the following conditions exist:
- Water standing on the infields of ball fields or goal mouths/midfield of multipurpose fields
- Where the grass is sparse or the field is worn badly and the ground is saturated
- Turf can be displaced or dislodged from the ground
- Mud cakes or clings to shoes
- Steady rain is falling
- Dirt (infield) areas are muddy
- The turf area is spongy or soft
If any of these conditions exist, then the practice will be canceled, or the game rescheduled. Poor weather conditions leading to cancellations will result in a credit on the Permit holder’s account or refund. It is the responsibility of the permit holder to contact the City and cancel any field lighting immediately after canceling games or practices so that utility costs are not incurred and lighting fees can be refunded. Failure to do so will result in the forfeiture of light charges by the permit holder.
