The 5-foot-5 pitcher transferred to Omaha Burke High School her senior year from Shenandoah High School (IA), where she had been named to the All-Conference team the two previous seasons. Willers earned a total of 9 varsity letters during her prep career and also qualified for the Iowa state track tournament in 2007.
â€œMaddie will give us a nice boost in the circle. She has 5 pitches and throws them all effectively, she is a hard worker on and off the field and we are very excited about her potential to grow here at Dakota State,â€ Prorok said.
Willers, the daughter of Jon and Sonia, plays club ball for the Omaha Finesse Gold 18U and coach Joe Negrete. She currently holds a 3.1 high school GPA and will major in Exercise Science while at Dakota State.
