Why do you participate in athletics? I participate in athletics because it makes me happy. I really enjoy the time spent with my teammates/coaches and I love the competition that comes with softball. Softball has always been a big part of my life and I am going to cherish my last season of highschool softball.

What is your favorite memory as a Winger? My favorite memory would have to be our team dinners at Applebee's after home games. It is always so fun to just hang out with my teammates and we are constantly cracking jokes and laughing when we are together.

Who has helped you the most in your athletic career? Several of my coaches throughout my softball career including Jon and Jim Bohmbach, Bob Loshek, Nat Wagner, and many others have helped me get to where I am today and also taught me very valuable life lessons. My parents have also helped so much because they made my softball career possible by supporting me from the start.
