What it means to represent the United States: To be able to wear USA across my chest is the biggest honor I have been able to receive. To go out and play the sport I love for my country is an un-explainable feeling and I am proud to be able to have this opportunity. It is a blessing and I am excited for this experience.
What she loves about softball: I enjoy being able to go out and enjoy the game I fell in love with. The joy I get from playing along side some of the best players and teammates in the country is a blessing. I enjoy the incredible opportunity I have received playing the game and the relationships I have made along the way are unforgettable.
Who has been the biggest supporter of your career: The two biggest supporters of my career are my mom and my grandma Sally. They have been through this journey with me since it all started and I can never thank them enough for everything they have done for me through this sport. They have given me the opportunity to play the sport that I love and I would not be here without them.
Why she chose to commit to Arizona: I chose to play there because I'm in love with Arizona and it feels like a home. The coaches are amazing and I can’t wait to play at Hillenbrand Stadium.
