Athlete of the Week: Spanish Fort’s Ainsley Lambert

“Even as a sophomore, she’s a dominant force as a pitcher. She leads with her attitude and on the mound. She’s an all-around athlete we’re excited to have,” said Spanish Fort softball coach Lauren Stewart.

“I don’t throw as fast as other people, but I throw with a lot of movement and spin. That’s how I keep people off balance,” said Spanish Fort pitcher Ainsley Lambert.

Lambert has done a great job keeping opponents off balance this season. She’s already struck out 155 batters in only 14 games.

“It’s a very good feeling when you write forward and backwards ‘K’s’ on the scorecard,” said coach Stewart.

“Once I step in that circle, everything around me gets really really quiet and I can’t really hear it,” said Lambert. “My mindset is I look at that person and think my best pitch is better than your best swing.”
