Hello, my name is Rachel Mcmullen. I am a sophmore at Western High School. My position is catcher but I also play 3rd, 1st, SS, and 2nd. I will play anywhere my coaches need me. I also play basketball and volleyball for my school. I have played softball since I was 6 and travel softball since I was 10. I was selected to our areas All-star team 3 years in a row. In 2019 our 12u team became the Illinois State Champs and we went to the central regional for the little league World Series. We finished top four in the central regional. It was an amazing experience and that is what motivated me to aspire to play college softball. I love school and was on high honor roll all year my freshman year ranked 1 out of 30 with a 4.0. I am currently holding a 4.0 my sophomore year as well. I was awarded the American Legion Scholarship Award. I am also a member of the student council. I still find time to hang with family and friends. I love being outside. I enjoy camping, fishing, and riding ATV’s. I hunt with my dad and grandpa. i just returned for another season with my 16u Texas Glory IL 06 team. I have worked with the same hitting coach weekly for 3 years but I also work on my own at home multiple times a week and with my team. I attend all practices unless it’s absolutely unavoidable. I give 100%, am positive, and on time. I am still considering majors but I am interested in agriculture, conservation, healthcare, and physical therapy. My younger sister plays sports as well. I volunteer at her camps and help with catching drills at practices. Coaching maybe something I would enjoy after graduating. My goal is to find a 4 year university with a competitive softball program. I’m looking for positive team mates and coaches that I can learn as much as possible from. My continuing goal in high school is to maintain my GPA. I will continue to learn and work hard at softball. Thank you for your time, sincerely Rachel McMullen.
