Kiana has experience at two NCAA Division I universities in the U.S. She has good power at the plate – 30 percent of her hits as a collegian were for extra bases – but can also bunt for a hit or put down a sacrifice.
She was originally recruited to Texas Tech University as a catcher, though her primary position in high school and on travel teams was shortstop. She later got in a good amount of time at second base and shortstop, though. At Rutgers, she caught and played second base.
She has a good throwing arm, with a 1.7 pop time to second base and throws in the low 70s (mph) from her infield positions.
Kiana says she leads “by example. While I’m usually not the most vocal person on the field, I pride myself on keeping a positive energy and presence. I am very passionate about the game, and I enjoy learning and teaching with those around me. I like to keep things light and fun while also being focused once I hit the field.”
Kiana also has quite a bit of coaching experience with youth teams, various softball camps and a high school-level travel team.
- Had 110 hits, including 10 home runs, scored 47 runs and tallied 69 RBIs in collegiate career
- Appeared in and started 41 games at shortstop in 2021
- Collected 22 hits, including six doubles, along with seven runs scored in 2021
- 2x Team Captain (2020, 2021)
- Academic All-Big Ten (2021)
- 2x Academic All-Big 12 First-Team (2017, 2019)
- Academic All-Big 12 Second-Team (2018)
Kiana wants to take her career overseas and play at higher levels. Additionally, she enjoys traveling and adapting to/learning about new environments. She says, “With an overseas opportunity, I will be able to live in new places and experience new cultures while playing softball.”
