I started playing softball at the age of seven years old and played t-ball before that. I started pitching at the age of nine and I had hoped since I first started playing that I would be able to go and play at a higher level of softball. Some of the highlights of my softball career is throwing a perfect game in the South Dakota state tournament and throwing a no hitter on the varsity team as a freshman and sophomore. Some of the ways I give back to my community is by volunteering at special Olympics events and also by helping coach younger softball players. Taking this into account my goal for my academics in college is to keep above a 3.0 GPA, I want to put as much time into school as I would softball. My goal as an athlete is to do right by my team I want to out work my opponents and help my team compete. I believe I would be a good fit for any team that is willing to work as hard as me and willing to make sacrifices. I take pride on how hard I work when it comes to the sport I have been told time and again how much time I spend out working my peers. To be able to play college level softball has been a dream of mine since I was nine years old.
