Olivia Matheny is a rising 2025 from Northeast Ohio in the Youngstown area. Defensively, Olivia is fairly versatile in the infield, but when she’s not pitching she’s generally found at 3B. She has a cannon for an arm and gets the ball across the diamond in a flash. Olivia moves well and demonstrates exceptional glove work but could use some speed and agility training to be more explosive laterally (to play MI at the college level). But she’s a force at 3B. In the circle, Olivia has good command and control with lots of spin and velocity from 56-58 with a nasty change. Offensively, she is generally found in the 3-4 hole and usually a line-drive gap hitter who belts a lot of extra-base hits with some occasional power. She’s a tough out and does get walked often, maintaining a high OBP. She is a leader amongst her teammates and is well respected by her coaches.

MESSAGE FROM OLIVIA
My name is Olivia Matheny, and I am a 3B/P/SS from Youngstown, Ohio. I go to Mathews High School (Class of 2025), where I’ll be playing for their freshman softball team next year. I also maintain a 4.0 grade point average. As an infielder, it’s always important that I communicate with my teammates. I am a strong batter at the plate. Even if I can’t always hit a home run, I hit strong line drives to the outfield which are just as good as a homer.
When I am not at 3B/P or SS, I will play anywhere my coaches need me and will give 100%. Off the field, I am always working hard to make myself stronger athletically and personally. I have put so much time and effort into this game that it is now my passion. One of my goals and dreams is to make the little girl who fell in love with softball proud of who I am now. I want to become the best player I can be, but I know that comes with a lot of time, effort and dedication. Thank you for taking the time to visit my profile, and I hope that I am the type of hard working, passionate player you are looking for!
