A big influence on why I play softball is my mother and my aunt. They both played softball at my age and my aunt went to college to play softball. They have both helped in developing me into the player I am today and I am beyond grateful for that. I have played softball dating back all the way to tee ball, but I have only been catching for roughly four years. I was a starter every year of my high school career, and I have been the starting catcher on every team, since I started practicing catching. I am so lucky to have the privilege of getting all of these recruiting opportunities and I can not wait to continue on this journey. I have been so excited to start this recruiting journey, I can not wait to prove myself to all of the coaches that give up their time to look at me.
The highlight of my softball career is getting second place with my travel softball team at Nationals. Over my years of playing softball, I have learned the importance of teamwork, commitment, communication, being patient, always paying attention, being open minded, and keeping a positive attitude. I have developed into the woman I am today because of the characteristics i have developed through playing softball. I learned things about my character, my work ethic, and what kind of leader I am. I have always been told I am coach able. I am always positive but get mad at myself a lot. I have always made friends easily and am considered a very approachable person. Some things you can count on me for is always being prepared, never giving up, always working hard, and making sure everybody is cared for. Some leadership opportunities I have had through softball are being captain of my high school team since my sophomore year and representing my travel team at a fundraising event.
Some of my academic goals for school are to be challenged, but I also want to do well in school. I want to end my high school career with keeping my grades up at the same rate they have been at since freshman year. I have no preference in the size of school, but I always love meeting new people! If I were to choose, I would prefer playing time over just being a part of a top notch roster. Playing time is important to me because I know I have worked hard for that spot. A very large obstacle for everyone was the corona virus. When we were able to hold face to face practices, I had the option of asking my coaches what I was doing wrong. Since we were unable to hold practices, I was able to self evaluate and start recording myself in order to solve the problem.
