Karlee Manzione, freshman, began her softball career in T-Ball at the youthful age of three, and is now continuing her career and education at Snow College.
Manzione started playing competitive ball for the Tooele County Thunder when she was eight. She’s an offensive powerhouse and an all-state third baseman. Karlee started and lettered all four years at Stansbury High School.
During her senior year, Manzione helped lead her team to win the 3A state title. “It was really good to see all our hard work pay off. It was really special to share such a great accomplishment with the girls I have been playing softball with forever,” said Karlee.
Manzione plays first and third base for the Badgers. She strives to be a caring teammate on and off the field. “She’s a great example of a hard worker in the classroom as well as on the field,” said teammate Rashelle North.
When not playing softball, she enjoys four-wheeling, taking back roads, star gazing, and listening to country music. Her favorite part about Snow College is the small town feel and proximity to home.
After Snow, Karlee plans to continue her education in secondary education and family consumer science at Utah State University.
