Downey’s Paloma Usquiano signs to play softball at Arkansas
DOWNEY — Paloma Usquiano, a Downey resident and senior at Orange Lutheran High School , has committed to play softball at the University of Arkansas.
“We are excited to welcome Jenna, Rylin, and Paloma to the Razorback softball family,” said head coach Courtney Deifel. “Although this class is small in size, there is no doubt they will have a huge impact from the day they step on campus. We cannot wait for them to get to Fayetteville and begin to make their mark on the program.”
Usquiano is a 5-ft., 5-in. Infielder who batted over .350 in each of her sophomore and junior seasons, including a .435 average during her sophomore campaign.
She belongs to the So Cal Athletics Jendro travel ball team, batting .350 and .360 during her sophomore and junior seasons, respectively.
She is the daughter of Downey residents Armando and Dianna Usquiano, and has two sisters, Sofia and Julie.
