Athletes Unlimited Softball signed a trio of hurlers to compete in the upcoming 2023 Championship Season. Taylor McQuillin, Peyton St. George, and Sydney Littlejohn Watkins have all renewed their contracts and will return to Rosemont, Ill. to compete with the league this summer.

Taylor McQuillin is entering her fourth year with the league after a career-best 1,074 leaderboard points in 2022. She set a league single-season record by making 14 appearances in the circle with three starts.

She finished with a 4-3 record and a save. She ranked second in the league with 46 strikeouts, including a trio of five-strikeout performances.

McQuillin was also a four-year letter winner for the Arizona Wildcats and represented Team Mexico at the 2020 Olympic Games.

Peyton St. George was one of the 13 athletes selected in the 2022 College Draft and after wrapping up her career at Duke, signed with AU. In her rookie year, she tallied 1,126 points with 11 appearances and three starts in the circle.

Her professional debut came on July 29, 2022 when she threw a season-high 4.2 innings with four strikeouts. She ranked sixth in the league with 22 strikeouts across her total of 26.1 innings.

St. George was a five-year letter winner for the Blue Devils who made a school-record 152 appearances in the circle from 2018-22.

Sydney Littlejohn Watkins made her AU Softball debut last year in the inaugural season of AUX.

In her 27 innings pitched, the curveball specialist went 1-0 with a 2.82 ERA and 15 strikeouts. She finished ninth overall on the leaderboard. Her stellar performance and the relationships she fostered as a great teammate earned her a contract to compete in the 2022 championship season.

There she posted a 2-0 record in eight appearances and 18.0 innings.

Season 4 of the AU Softball Championship Season debuts July 28. Tickets are on sale now.
