As an athlete overall I bring athleticism, versatility, intelligence, and competitiveness. I switched between starting pitcher and starting shortstop and occasionally center field my entire career leading up to college. In college, I switched between starting as a pitcher, every outfield position, and second base all throughout my career.
As a pitcher, I am able to field my position very effectively and make heads up plays that others may not. My ability to cover bunts allowed my college team to comfortably have either first base or third base stay home instead of crashing every single time, which opened up possibilities for pick-off plays. Even though I am short, I am strong, quick and explosive which allows me to pitch 60-64mph. With my height, I have to take a different approach to intimidating hitters, so I mix speeds, pitches, and locations to keep hitters uncomfortable and off balance in the box.
As an infielder, I have range, make quick first steps, and am willing to put my body on the line. I am also able to execute the various throws that different plays call for, and am able to make reads on flyballs over my head and into the outfield.
As a hitter, I can hit for power, execute short game, and bunt for hits. My success comes from trusting my hands, hitting the ball where it is pitched, and keeping the ball on a line. I go with the outside pitch well, and I also have speed and intelligence on the bases and am always looking to steal extra bases.
As an outfielder, my speed and willingness to dive allow me to cover a lot of ground and have a wide range. Having infield experience gives me an advantage in the outfield as well, especially in right field, by allowing me to throw out hitters running to first on a ball that goes through the 3-4 hole. I have also made multiple double plays from the outfield by back-picking and doubling off runners that take too far of leads. My college career let me develop confidence in using my voice when calling for balls and gaining a better understanding of my range.
I like to lead by example but also give help and mentorship. I have had many of my teammates tell me that my work ethic and the way I push myself by giving everything I have inspires them to do the same. My teammates do not have to question my passion, effort, work ethic, or commitment. I also care very deeply for those I play with, and feel that grinding alondside your teammates is part of what provides that connection. When it’s time to practice, play, or do anything softball-related we are all a team and I don’t believe that outside issues should carry over.
I am also a believer in healthy competition, and the effort I bring on a daily basis helps foster a competitive environment for those willing to compete with and against me. I also love helping and connecting with people, and have stayed extra and/or come back to give extra reps to teammates many times. Being a coach to young players has taught me how to break down and teach skills in simple yet effective ways, and I have been able to teach some of my younger teammates skills they were trying to learn in this same manner. I also believe the game is and should be fun, and for me, knowing I have put in the work and prepared myself is what helps me trust myself and have fun come gametime.
2020 – Gave my new head coach her first career win as a head coach; 1 hit, complete game shutout
2021 – First program win against Stanford and against a Pac 12 team; I pitched a complete game, 2 hit shutout, issued 1 walk and struck out 4 batters.
2022 – BYU conference series, BYU TV Brady Industries Impact Player
2023 – I came in for relief against Cal Berkely (top 30 team at the time) and pitched 6 shutout innings to keep my team in the game and to take it to the 11th inning.
2023 – Personal lowest career ERA
Team broke the single-season win record 3 of my 5 college seasons (2019, 2022, 2023)
Stole 29 bases and was caught stealing only once.
Over 300 collegiate innings pitched.
I want to continue to love, learn, and grow the game. I know in my heart that I am not ready to hang up the cleats even though I am done with college, and that I can and will continue to develop myself as a player and person. I am not satified with how my college career ended, and know I have more to give to the game.
I want to take my career overseas because I think there is always more to learn. I value information and knowledge, and believe that I can expand and improve my understanding of softball by playing in a different country.
After my season ended, I continued to train just as if I still had games to play. I would go to the field with one of my teammates and take reps multiple times a week. I have also stayed in excellent physical shape. For strength training, I have been following Army Special Operation Combat Fitness Programs utilitzed by 3rd Ranger Batallion of the United States Army (access to them provided to me by my significant other). They are various 6-8 week long programs, each with a different focus of fitness, such as power edurance, explosiveness, single-leg power, etc. I also workout with a D1 sprinter to maintain sprinting speed, and run distance as an additional way to keep up my conditioning and endurance.
I have contacted local colleges to throw batting practice to their players to keep my arm live and in pitching shape. I am also consistently thinking critically about pitching, fielding, and hitting skills when I create drills for my players to do, and I save those same drills for myself as well. I utilitze tennis balls to work on short-hops and picks, and have a 4 seam spinner to practice my spins to keep the spin and movement on my pitches efficient.
