Uwharrie Charter Academy, softball

Bulla has been a standout at the plate and from the pitching circle during her senior season for the Eagles.

Bulla entered this week with a .391 batting average. Her six home runs and 10 doubles were team-high marks after also leading UCA in those categories last year.

As a pitcher, Bulla has averaged nearly two strikeouts per inning this season.

Last week, UCA won first- and second-round games – against Mitchell and Swain County – in the Class 1-A state playoffs, giving them 19 victories this season. That tied the program record for wins, a mark that had been set in 2018.

Bulla has signed to play college softball at Appalachian State.
