Her dedication, drive and enthusiasm for success are all second to none. Off the field, Kally has always displayed high moral conduct and virtues. The same leadership skills Kally displays on the field are also very evident in the classroom and all of the co-curricular activities she is involved in.  Kally is always striving to be the best, and she again has the personality and vision to make those around her better students and more importantly better people.

I have known Kally for about 1 year now while she has played for the Bandits organization during that time. She is one of the most dedicated players we have had in our program in the last few years. She is hard-working, energetic, dynamic and a pleasure to be around and to coach. This past year, I have had the pleasure to be her travel ball coach on a great summer schedule that took us around the country to play softball. We were very successful and Kally was a major part of our success. She is one of the best outfielders that we have had in our program. She is a clutch performer and comes through time and time again when you need her. Kally is just a very gifted athlete in the sport of fastpitch softball. As a person, Kally is even better than I have described above. She is dedicated, motivated and loyal to the program. She is always there when you need her. Kally has the ability to make her teammates better and she always does it with a smile on her face. Kally would be an asset to any program or organization that she feels she would like to be apart of. Kally is what a student-athlete should be — smart and hard-working.
— Roger Schliewe Jr., Wisconsin Bandits 16U Gold coach

MESSAGE FROM KALLY

My name is Kally Meredith, and I am a 5-foot-5, 110-pound 2023 outfielder at Kaukauna High School in Wisconsin. My GPA is a 3.9 (unweighted). I am a slapper and have a home-to-first time off contact of 2.86 seconds. I use my speed and slapping abilities to get on base. I had a batting average of .509 and an on-base percentage of .544 in my 2019-20 club season (222 at-bats playing with the Wisconsin Bandits 16U Gold). I read the defense and take what they give me, whether it is a soft slap, power slap, drag bunt or my stand and hit. I can place the ball, not only on the left side but pulling it with me, when I need to get myself on base. 

Softball takes up most of my time, considering I practice almost every day. I work out with a trainer once a week during season and three times a week off-season, I hit at my batting cage every day with my dad and have practices outside of my club team. I took honors classes my past year and achieved high honors all three trimesters of my freshman year. I was member of ski club and enjoyed going to my school’s sports games. Outside of school and sports, I like to coach younger kids in figure skating and softball and babysit. 

Thank you for taking the time to read more about me. I am excited to get to know you and your school.
