Hot Shots: Katie Mathis

Katie Mathis, 10, will travel to Kingman, Ariz., this weekend to compete in the American Softball Association Western Nationals.

Katie, a fifth-grader at Alta Sierra Elementary School, plays softball with the Sacramento-based California Breeze.

She and her teammates secured a berth in the 10-and-under bracket with a top-three finish in the Sacramento Metro tournament in early July.

Mathis, an outfielder, hit .387. She was also part of the Rocklin 10-and-under all-star team that sported a 21-1-1 record this season.

The Western Nationals will take place over three days, Friday through Sunday.
