Personal Statement

For starters, academics is very important to me as I'm a honor role student with a GPA over 4.0.  Also, I serve on the Student Council and the Captains Council, which is an inaugural program in which athletes were selected by coaches/teachers based on their leadership skills.  I'm the youngest member and the only sophomore that is on this council.

Athletically, the simple answer is that I can pitch, hit for power/average, play anywhere on the field and I'm a true student of the game. It's my passion and love for the game that makes me special and has attracted me to coaches in the competitive and college ranks. I take great pride in trying to be the best player possible whether it be at a practice and/or each and every pitch of a game.  I'm a quiet leader who leads by example on the diamond and is a good role model for her teammates.

One attractive feature is that I'm extremely versatile and can play any position (except catcher) on the diamond without the team missing a beat.  I'm a very consistent player game in and game out and rarely make a mistake on the field.  I have great hands, above average arm and range with great reaction to the ball.

I'm most noted for my hitting as I'm an extremely disciplined hitter with quick hands.  I have always batted in the 3 spot for my travel teams because of my discipline at the plate, power, and the ability to hit for a high average.  If you ever look at a spray chart, I will hit the ball to all fields and with power.  I'm very smart in the batter’s box, and always thinking how a pitcher is trying to get me out and making adjustments to my AB on the fly. When I see a pitch I like I'm aggressive, however, I will also make a pitcher work for every pitch in each at bat.  I wait back well on the change of speeds and square up pitches in all zones well. 

I have worked hard to place myself in this position and anyone who sees me on a game to game basis can see what benefit I can be to a college softball program.  If requested, I can provide any referrals in the form of college coaches or trainers.
