Hi, my name is Rachel Matthies and I am an infielder from Morton Grove, Illinois. I also have experience in the outfield. I am an academic sophomore in college. I played my freshman year at the University of Missouri- St. Louis, and we remained top 10 nationally all throughout season.I had shoulder surgery in the fall of my freshman year and declared a medical hardship red shirt. Despite this, I played in a few season games to gain some experience, but remained under the 20% mark in order to uphold my medical hardship. I am now fully recovered and excited about finding a new program that's right for me!
I studied at the Pierre Laclede Honors College there and received a 4.0 both semesters. I really enjoyed being apart of UMSL's softball program, but I am very family oriented and I want to continue my education closer to home.
As far as schools go, I am open to almost anything closer to home. I am a criminology major, and I seek to attend a university with a well-known academic reputation. I would also like to play for a competitive softball program. Whether it's on the field or in the classroom, I always strive to work as hard as I can and be successful.
