2019 Hot 100 Recruits
31 | Makenna Kliethermes P/UT | DeMarini Aces (Oregon)
This right-handed pitcher has command throwing in the mid-60s and made a splash at the So Cal A’s Invitational last summer. It was the beginning of a great run for Kliethermes, who led her Aces to a 43-game winning streak, during which she picked up 290 Ks over 153 innings for an outstanding 0.729 ERA. This fall she handed a loss to the Beverly Bandits-Conroy. She was a first-team all-state player on her Wardsville (MO) Blair Oaks team. Kliethermes had a standout no-hitter in the state semifinal playoff game, striking out 19 batters in a single outing. With interest from multiple Power Five programs, this serious pitcher is heading to the northwest to Oregon, where she will hope to lead Mike White’s Pac-12 program to continued success.
50 | Mackenzie Donihoo | SS | DeMarini Aces (Oklahoma)
Donihoo’s strong 2017 season in club and high school ball propelled her into the Hot 100 as she led her Mustang (OK) High team to the state championship and during the summer she batted .449 with an on-base percentage of .529 and 20 steals and was third on Ryan Taylor’s DeMarini Aces squad in RBIs and home runs. Donihoo has the speed at 2.7 home-to-first to leg out gap hits into extra bases as shown by her .421 high school batting average which included 15 doubles. On defense, she reads the ball well, isn’t afraid to charge, has 65 mph overhand velocity and uses her command of the quick-release style to shut down the short game. The infielder was spotted by college coaches during her 8th-grade season and visited LSU and Florida along with her eventual choice, Missouri, and soon thereafter committed to Mizzou.
66 | Maci Cunconan | DeMarini Aces (Oklahoma State)
85 | Megan Moll C/UT | DeMarini Aces (Missouri)
Moll has been a premier soccer player prior to this year and is now competing full-time in travel ball. She has impressed so many in a short period of time, receiving an offer to Mizzou where she’ll follow in the footsteps of Ace alums Kendyll Bailey and Callie Martin, two former PGF All-Americans. Moll is primarily a catcher, but her athleticism translates to almost every other position where she can play if needed. Behind the plate, she has been clocked with a 1.67 pop time and 65 mph overhand. She had a big season for her Eureka (MO) High team, batting .500 with 13 home runs, 51 RBIs, and 16 steals to earn first-team all-state honors. In club play, she hit .478 and led the Aces in homers with half her hits being for extra-base hits (1.62 OPS).
