Personal Statement

When I was eight-years-old and playing Little League softball for the Sand Gnats, I had my first experience winning a championship, and I knew then that I was hooked. It didn’t take long before I started to pursue pitching lessons, which later helped my All Stars teams win District Championships and make a run at State Championship titles. Fast forward eight years, and I’m now the primary pitcher for both my high school and travel teams and excited about the prospect of playing softball in college while getting the best education possible. My parents are both former Division I athletes (Colgate ’93) who have taught me what a rewarding experience it is to attend a great school while playing a sport that you love.

 

As a student-athlete from York, Maine, I know I have to work extra hard to distinguish myself from other players who play in more competitive states. I find ways to train in the off-season to make sure I’m at the top of my game in the spring and summer. I keep up with my pitching and batting lessons, as well as strength and conditioning, even during my varsity volleyball season in the fall. I’ve also attended more than 20 college softball camps, and I’ve seen first-hand that I can compete with others from all over the country. I’m a competitor with fortitude, plus I’m coachable and have a willingness to learn. I also push myself in school, and continually make honor roll while taking as many AP classes as my school allows, as well as honors courses.

 

It’s my goal to help my high school team win a State Championship before I graduate in 2020. I’m also excited to play with my travel team this year and will do what I can to help us go deep into each and every tournament. My teammates would tell you that I’m a quiet leader and a competitor who rarely gets rattled when I’m in the circle. Softball has introduced me to some of my very best friends, and I can’t wait to meet more people and continue my softball experience in college.
