Former Colfax-Mingo pitcher to be Hall of Famer
Hysell-Carlton is in 2013 class of Iowa Softball Hall of Fame
(Editor’s Note: Two Jasper County natives will be inducted into the Iowa Girls High School Athletic Union’s Softball Hall of Fame on Friday. This is the first of two stories on those women.)
Sitting in a dugout at the softball field where her career took off, Libby Hysell-Carlton reflected on the journey she made from youth recreational softball to being an all-state high school player for Colfax-Mingo High School and later an All-American for Central College in Pella.
“When I was younger and just starting out, there were no pitchers on the team. The coaches said ‘Oh, Libby, you want to try.’ I had terrible form, but I could throw it pretty hard,” Carlton said. “I just thought — this is for me.”
