Coach Kee on Makawe: "Rhylie's ability to drive the ball with power opposite field is something you typically do not see out of such a young player. She's a tough kid who takes every at-bat as if it were her last."

Why Rhylie chose North Texas: "I chose to attend North Texas because the academic programs available to me allow me to focus on my prospective major of environmental engineering while also having the opportunity to play the sport I love at a competitive collegiate level."
