COLUMBUS, Ohio – Skylar Limon, a senior at Sonora High School in La Habra, Calif., will continue her academic and athletic career as a member of the Ohio State softball program next year, head coach Kelly Kovach Schoenly announced today.
“We are really excited to add Skylar to this incoming 2022 class,” said Kovach Schoenly. “She brings a high softball IQ, a tenacious spirit, and an athletic versatility to play all over the field. The quality that Skylar has that sets her apart from her peers is her blazing speed. She will be able to use that on the base paths as well as in the outfield.”
Limon, who plays a multitude of positions in both the infield and outfield, is a three-year varsity letterwinner for Sonora. In 2019, her freshman season, she was named the team’s Rookie of the Year and was a first-team all-league selection while batting .523.
After COVID-19 forced the cancelation of her sophomore season in 2020, Limon came back last spring to earn Offensive Player of the Year honors and first-team all-league honors. She also served as a team captain and scholar-athlete.
In summer ball, Limon plays for the Firecrackers organization. In 2021, her team was the Triple Crown 18U national champions and finished seventh at the Alliance Nationals.
Off the field, Limon is involved with a student club called NAMI, which stands for National Awareness of Mental Illnesses. It promotes awareness for students who struggle with mental illnesses.
