2015 Mountain Ridge graduate Alyssa DiCarlo is wrapping up a dominant career at the University of Georgia and already knows where she will play at the professional level.

On April 15, the Chicago Bandits of the National Pro Fastpitch softball league drafted the third baseman with the fourth pick in the first round. The NPF league has a total of six teams and plays its season in late May through August.

In the March 10 game against Western Illinois, DiCarlo became Georgia’s new all-time home runs leader. She hit two home runs in the game to tie then break the record with home runs 58 and 59. With a first-inning home run against Texas A&M on April 7, she became the fastest Bulldog to hit 20 home runs, doing it in 41 games.

In the first inning at Auburn March 29, DiCarlo doubled down the left field line to plate CJ Landrum, recording career RBI 237 and breaking Georgia’s all-time career RBI record.

The extra-base hits record fell in the series finale against Texas A&M April 7 with a two-run home run in the first inning. It was career extra-base hit 122 (53 doubles, 4 triples, 65 home runs).

DiCarlo leads active Division I softball student-athletes with 65 home runs, 245 RBI, and 520 total bases. In additional categories, she ranks fifth in doubles (53).
