Kathryn Marshall, a varsity softball player at Rocky Mountain High, died Friday, Grizzlies coach Brian White told the Idaho Statesman. The cause of death has not been determined, White said.

White said Marshall, a 15-year-old freshman, was admitted to the hospital Friday morning and died that afternoon.

A vigil will be held at 9 p.m. Wednesday at Rocky Mountain’s varsity softball field. A memorial page is online for those wanting to share memories of the teenager.

“We wanted to open it up to everybody,” White said. “She was just an all-around great kid. You wanted her in the classroom. She was positive with everybody. ... We miss her.”

Rocky Mountain (17-7) opens the 5A state softball tournament against Bonneville (9-16) at noon MT Friday at Coeur d’Alene High. You can see the full tournament bracket here.
