Alabama softball player Ashley Prange spoke about mental health in front of many young softball players at the Play for Peyton Memorial softball tournament last weekend.
The Play for Peyton Memorial Softball Tournament was founded by the Peyton Riekhof Foundation for Youth Hope. This foundation was created in memory of Peyton Riekhof, a young woman who tragically lost her battle with depression in 2013.
According to website, “The foundation strives to educate our community and schools about youth and adolescent mental health issues and suicide prevention. We provide and support community services and programs that reduce the stigma around mental illness.
Prange, a graduate student from New Palestine, Indiana, spent her first three seasons at Ohio State before transferring to Alabama in the summer of 2021.
Prange proved to be a big part of Team 26, as she finished with the second-highest batting average (.333), tied for the second-most home runs (8), and earned the more steps (31) from the team. The newcomer was one of two Alabama players to earn a spot on the All-SEC First Team.
