High School: Marissa Botz is a four-year letterwinner for Suzanne Schulgen at Morton Ranch High School. Botz is a talented pitcher and offensive threat and was recently selected Second Team All-District in 2010. She has served as captain of her high school team since her freshman year and led the team to Texas state playoffs for the first time in school history. In 2010 she was selected to pitch in the televised "Best of the Best" All-American Game as part of her travel ball squad. She is also a three-year Academic All-District player at Morton Ranch.
Coach DeFeo on Botz: "Marissa is a special athlete that can do many things on the diamond. At the plate, she is a lefty with great speed and power. In the field, Marissa will be a dominant force in the pitching circle. She has smooth enough hands to play middle infield, and the foot speed to track anything down in the outfield for the Bears."
