Starters Softball is proud and excited to announce that we have hired former North Dakota State Bison Outfielder Jenna Isbel to our incredible staff!

Isbel, a Fontana, California native graduated from Etiwanda High School in 2012 and continued her education and athletic career at the Division I level with North Dakota State University. During her time at NDSU, the Bison won the Summit League all four years, won the Summit League Tournament three consecutive years, and competed in three NCAA Regional Tournaments. Isbel’s junior year, the NDSU Bison we’re ranked #23 in the country. They also took down #2 ranked Alabama on the road during her senior season in Tuscaloosa. Over the course of her collegiate career she tallied All-Summit League Honorable Mentions and All-Summit League Second Team nominations.


Isbel grew up hitting from both sides of the plate, however at NDSU, Isbel focused on hitting from the left side. She incorporated “slapping” to utilize her speed and knowledge of reading defenses. She played all three outfield positions, and at NDSU she recorded just two errors. Throughout her career she took pride in her defense, knowing that defense wins championships.

“I am excited to be joining the Starters Training Program. The love and passion I have for this game, is lived through my athletes. I want to share my journey as I help others start theirs. My blue- collared work ethic will get each athlete where they want to be.” -Jenna Isbel


“As Starters Sports Training grows, we are continually looking to add current and former players, coaches, and trainers to our program. Jenna, being a former Midwest competitor of mine, makes me excited to add her personality, knowledge, and passion to our staff. “ - Sam Macken
