Simpson University Sports News
Kara Wall has proven to be one of the most powerful hitters to ever come out of the Simpson University women’s softball program. With her leadership and poise at a young age, it is clear to see that Wall will be one of the best softball players in Simpson’s history.
Wall played three years of varsity softball at West Campus High School, where she earned all-league (2010-2012), all-city (2010-2012), all-metro honorable mention (2012), and varsity MVP (2010-2012) honors. In 2012, she was second in home runs in the San Joaquin section. Her academic accomplishments include being on the honor roll. She played club softball for the California Breeze.
Wall is entering her second season with the Lady Red Hawks. During her freshman season, she earned all-conference honors and broke Simpson's single-season home run record. Wall is also ranked nationally in many categories: second in home runs per game (0.382), sixth in home runs (13), sixth in slugging percentage (0.894), 11th in runs batted in per game (1.265), 23rd in total bases per game (2.471), and 42nd in total runs batted in (43).
Wall had three RBIs and a home run in Simpson’s 5-0 win against Menlo in the first game of a double-header on April 16. She had four RBIs and two home runs and went 2-for-3 from the plate in Simpson’s 8-0 win against Menlo in game two.
