I am a hard worker, I am very committed to softball and take it very seriously while having fun and supporting my teammates. I believe I am different from many other recruits because of my work ethic and commitment to the team. This includes maintaining and improving my game. I have played the following positions: Center Field, Right Field, Left Field, Third Base, First Base and Catcher. In recent years, in addition to my school team, I have played on the NH Comets 16U and NH Lightning 18U travel teams. This this year I earned a spot with Granite State Elite 18U as my Lightning team was dissolved as my coaches will not be returning next season. In offering me a position on the team my Lightning coach wrote:
"we are very interested in having Sophia play with us next season. She showed great self confidence in all areas of her game and we appreciate her hustle/work ethic/energy during tryouts."
My Granite State Elite coach noticed that I was "very coachable".
I have been able to maintain a schedule that usually went as follows: School (7:45-2:12) , cabaret rehearsal (2:15-3:20), softball (3:30-6:00) and then play rehearsal (6:15-10:00). I was able to maintain this schedule and get all of my homework complete, have good grades and enjoy all. I expect this new school year will be similar to last and to be able to maintain this balance through my college experience. My other goals for college include continuing in a theater/music program and world language/culture studies. I take pride in what I do and always give 100% effort. I think I would be a positive addition to your team.
Thank you for your consideration,
