Bases are loaded, who do you want up to bat? 15­ year ­old Allie Stanya might just be your best bet. Allie, daughter of BP technician Derek Stanya, plays softball in a league of her own. How amazing it is to have found your passion at just 15 years of age. Allie currently plays at Babylon High School. During the summer months she plays under 18 elite travel softball. This young lady is a dedicated individual who has been putting up quite impressive numbers on the field. Below are some of her stats as a freshman.

As a freshman last year:

When we asked Derek where Allie gets her unique talent from he said “I’m not sure, she was always into sports from a really young age. The crazy part is, she’s just a teen and hasn’t even developed yet.” Derek is excited for what the future holds for his daughter but believes education must always come first. Allie currently has 5+ colleges and universities scouting her during her games. Stardom at a young age can come with many pressures. Derek looks to be there each step of the way to help Allie with the process. He encourages her to focus on the bigger picture which is doing something she loves and to the best of her ability.

As a pitcher:

  • Team Record 12-3
  • 137 Strikeouts in 92 Innings
  • Threw 2 No-Hitters
  • 1 Perfect Game
  • 6 Shutouts

 

We put the spotlight on those who are doing extraordinary things. Allie not only excels on the softball field but also in the classroom where it is most important. Her ability to balance her extracurricular activities and schooling in an outstanding manner deserves recognition.
