I am currently a three sport freshman athlete but my passion has always been softball. I have been playing softball since I was 8 years old. I fell in love with the game the moment I stepped on the field. At age 11, I knew I wanted to play at the college level. I am a slapper/left-handed batter. I can also hit from the right side if needed. I am a utility player except pitcher, but my main focuses are catcher and first base. Over the years, I have been on 4 different travel softball teams. And each one of them has taught me that failure is inevitable but the only time you truly fail is if you give up. I have a never give up attitude that pushes me in those tough moments. When you do succeed, it is worth all of the failures and work to improve.
In 8th grade, I was presented with the Dana Casey Award. The Dana Casey Award is given to one female student athlete who has shown citizenship, sportsmanship, and commitment to her studies. This award is voting on by the community members. I was a member of National Junior Honor Society and was treasurer of 4 different school clubs in Jr. High. I am currently on student council in high school and aim to be in National Honor Society in upcoming years. I currently have a 4.0 GPA. All of these activities taught me the value of commitment, honesty, and leadership.
By knowing the value of these things, it has made me a better player, better teammate, and a better person. In the future, I would like to be a part of a program that doesn’t only challenge me athletically and academically, but also to become a productive adult in society. I believe I can make an impact on your program with my coachability, character, and talent.
