One of the top all-around athletes in the 2023 class is Savanna Bedell who plays for Atlanta Vipers – Tamborra 05 team.
Savanna placed in the Top 20 of the Extra Elite 100 as a 5-tool player who, according to Coach Stacy Tamborra, “is extremely athletic and possess a high softball IQ, but what separates her from others in her class is her defensive skill set.”
At the centerfield spot, Savanna has great instincts and “gobbles up real estate” with a strong arm that helps her lead the Vipers in assists.
She recently was clocked at 2.78 home-to-first and, according to her coach, “Based off her stride length and amount of steps to first base, her trainer projects that she will run a 2.6 in the near future.”
Here’s a closer look at this promising athlete who has camped at several SEC schools and will soon be on the radar of most of the country’s elite programs…
