MN Vortex and MN A's Really Making Their Mark!

Minnesota Vortex and Minnesota A's players will again be populating college ball fields all over the place this fall and spring! The Vortex program has consistently produced high level ball players who have gone on to play at dozens of colleges.  We are proud of our alumni!  

In past years we have had NCAA recognition, MSHSL recognition, Gatoraide Player of the year Recognition and many other high accolades.  2015 was a real highlight as the Big Ten freshman of the year Maddie Houlihan, the Minnesota Gatorade Player of the year, Carlie Brandt and Ms Minnesota Softball Katelyn Kemmetmueller have all worn the Minnesota A's jersey!

Several other Vortex / A's players were also nominated and were finalists in the room for both the Gatorade and Ms Minnesota Awards, this makes the Minnesota A's / Vortex program well represented for the highest honors in the State!
