Tell us about your travel team/organization and how you got involved with them?
I play for Finesse-Hoverman 14U. I got involved with Finesse earlier this year. When they asked me to replace, I said yes and it was probably the best decision I’ve made so far. The support, encouragement and heart these coaches showed me in the short time I substituted, I just knew that was where I needed to be. The girls on this team are so talented and fun to be around. I felt like I had known them forever. I’m so excited to see what this summer will bring to my team and so excited to set new goals for myself as well.
Can you talk about your experience at Glenoak High and how you got there?
I am a first year student at Glenoak. My experience so far has been nothing but great. This year was also the first year for my coaches and we may not have had a winning season, but she taught me a lot as a person and as a teammate and I can’t thank her enough. I look forward to the next three years with her and my teammates.
Who is your sports hero?
I follow a few girls on social media and watch them play on TV who I consider to be great softball players and I feel like there are so many girls I look up to for different reasons.
Do you have a secret talent/skill?
I can stick out my shoulder blades.
What is your most memorable softball story?
I definitely have to say that would be the game this year when we were tied in the bottom of the 8th and I hit a home run.
