What is your favorite sports memory at Albright?
My favorite sports memory at Albright was during my junior year when we swept LVC on senior day and made playoffs for the first time in 12 years and when I hit my first collegiate home run in the first round of ECAC.”
What are your post-graduate plans?
My post-graduate plans are to work as a buyer for a company and maybe one day own my own store.”
What is one thing that you would like to say to current Albright softball underclassmen/future Albright softball student-athletes?
“Enjoy every second of it because it goes by fast. Practice and play every game like it’s your last and never take it for granted.”
Why did you chose Albright/Favorite part about Albright?
“I chose Albright because I was looking for a school where I could play softball and also where I could major in fashion merchandising. Not a lot of schools offer a fashion program and athletics. My favorite part about Albright was being able to be a part of the softball team and the lifelong friendships I was able to make with my teammates.”
