The Mariah Christian file

  • Name: Mariah Christian
  • School: Badger/Greenbush-Middle River
  • Class: Junior
  • Honors: Breakdown Top 75 juniors
  • Coach comment: "Mariah is an extreme competitor who did an outstanding job pitching for us. She isn't a huge strikeout pitcher but hits spots and changes speed well.

Q and A

Give me a short scouting report on yourself as a player. What are your strengths?

  • My strengths are that I work hard, I am a good leader, and I play with a lot of passion.

Can you tell us one unusual thing about yourself that others may not know?

  • My nickname is MC.

What's the best part of playing high school softball and why?

  • The best part about playing high school softball is being with my team who I see as my family and getting to play the sport I love.

Tell me about the outlook for your team this year. What are the strengths of your team?

  • Batting is one of our biggest strengths, last season everyone had a .400 or above batting average. With that, we are also very strong defensively.

What other activities are you involved in at the high school level?

  • I am involved in basketball, knowledge bowl, target team, student council, close-up, band, choir, and I am class secretary.

What type of training do you do in the offseason?

  • I lift weights, play basketball, summer softball, and do other conditioning in the offseason.

Breakdown featuring our daily spotlight players

Every weekday until the official high school sports seasons begin (an unknown date with the current world situation), BREAKDOWN SPORTS will be featuring a spotlight player in each of the seven sports we cover! 

With the high school sports world on pause, THE BREAKDOWN wants to make sure these athletes are recognized for their accomplishments on the field, court, rink, diamond, etc.

The schedule of spotlight players will be as follows:

  • Monday: softball
  • Tuesday: baseball
  • Wednesday: girls' volleyball
  • Thursday: boys' and girls' basketball
  • Friday: boys' and girls' hockey

Each of our spotlight players will have action and posed photos, as well as the Q and A information they provided for this past year's Breakdown book in their respective sport.
