I got started with softball by the time I was just 7-years-old but I suppose at that time it was considered tee ball. 12 years later here I am still playing.
I never wanted to be a pitcher but a catcher. My dad told me we were going to a catching lesson; he lied. He wanted me to pitch so we ended up at my very first pitching lesson and the rest is history.
I played travel ball for years and as those years went on my love for the sport only grew fonder. Before I knew it I was looking for a potential college career on a softball team.
Being a student-athlete is not easy but so worth it. I have met lifelong friends and companions. I would rather stay awake until 3 o’clock in the morning doing an assignment after games than be in bed because I’m making memories to last a lifetime.
I love this sport, I love the friends it has brought me along the way and I wouldn’t change my experience for anything in the world.
