Personal

As a softball player I am a positive team player who brings the energy to the team. I will always be cheering my teammates on no matter what. I am a natural leader on and off the field. At Carthage College I was assistant team captain my junior year and team captain my senior year. As a team captain I would lead the team through stretching and warmups. Off the field I would organize team bonding events as well.

On the field I am a leadoff batter that primarily hits for contact. However, I can hit for power as well. I am very patient at the plate which has led to numerous walks. I run a 2.8 from home to first, and am quick and precise enough to bunt for a hit. I am a quick and smart baserunner with a time of 2.6 stealing from first to second. This allows me to successfully steal bases. As a fielder I mainly play 3rd base. Since I have been playing softball for my whole life I am able to recognize situations and adjust my positioning accordingly. As a senior  I led the team in fielder-assists on the team. Overall, I am a player who will never give up and will be a valuable asset to any team.
