Haupt receives scholarship in 2022 SABR Women in Baseball essay contest

SABR’s Women in Baseball Committee is pleased to award one scholarship to a high school senior in its Women in Baseball Essay Contest in 2022.

Due to the generous donations of committee members, the Women in Baseball Committee has awarded a $500 scholarship to Morgan Haupt, an honors graduate of Derby High School in Derby, Kansas.

Students were asked to write an essay of 1,500 words or less addressing the following question: “Choose one person or event in women’s baseball history that you believe has made a significant impact on the game and explain the importance.”

During high school, Haupt was on the varsity softball and cross country teams, participated in marching, symphonic and basketball pep band, and was a member of the National Honor Society, Sign Language Club, and Kansas Association for Youth. She received multiple state and local softball special team recognition awards, including All-State recognition as a pitcher. Her career goal is to become a physical therapist and she will attend the University of the Ozarks to pursue a bachelor’s degree in biology and play softball.

Eligible applicants for the Women in Baseball Scholarship were current high school seniors who were anticipating completion of their high school diploma at the time of application, planning to pursue a degree at an accredited U.S. post-secondary institution, and carrying a minimum 2.5 GPA at the end of their junior year.
