Newton native going into Hall of Fame
Pella Christian’s Grimes-Rottinghaus to be inducted into IGHSAU Softball Hall of Fame
Emily Grimes hit her pitching stride as a sophomore at Pella Christian High School in the late 1980s. By her senior season, Grimes was in control from the circle on the softball diamond.
Grimes, who is now Emily Grimes-Rottinghaus of Johnston, was the Iowa Class 1A Player of the Year in 1990. Her career pitching record was 112-15 and she was a two-time first-team Class 1A all-state selection after leading the Pella Christian Eagles to two state tournament berths.
“I realized my sophomore year I enjoyed being on the mound and setting the tempo for the game for my team,” Rottinghaus said. “It (the mound) was one place in my life I was in control.”
