No doubt Daisy Page’s introduction to NCAA D1 softball was a little harsh.

But in life, much like with sports, the secret to success is standing tall in the face of adversity.

In that case the 6-foot pitcher from Anchorage has been huge for Mississippi Valley State University.

The freshman has carved out a three-game, 6-inning scoreless streak in a promising sign she has found her rhythm.

Page, of East High fame, is among only a handful of Alaska women playing D1 softball this year.

The two-time Gatorade Alaska Player of the Year has pitched 19.1 innings with Mississippi State of the Southwestern Athletic Conference.

Even though she has yet to pitch in a college game when her team has had the lead, Page has managed to slice her 12.31 ERA in half since the middle of February.
