I am currently in my sophomore year at Saint Xavier University, where my main position is pitcher. My major is Elementary Education, with an endorsement in mathematics. I helped work the SXU 2017 camp. I received an award at SXU from being a student-athlete with a GPA of 3.8 for my freshman year, while being a part of the Honors Program.
I graduate from Tinley Park High School, where I was a four year varsity softball player. My freshman year we went down state and took 3rd place. My sophomore year I won Player of the Year. My senior year I won Athlete of the Year. I received All-Conference my sophomore, junior, and senior year. I was also a part of the National Honors Society.
I’ve been playing softball since the age of 5, joining my first travel team at the age of 8. I have been pitching since the age of 7. I was part of many travel teams, but ended my travel career with the Chicago Cheetahs. I played on Brian Bowman’s team for my last two years of travel ball, where I pitched and played first base. Both years we went to PGF nationals in Huntington Beach, California. We placed 25th the first year and 33rd the second.
As far as coaching experience, I helped coach the 12u Mokena Blast in the winter of 2016. I helped coach the 2017 14u Chicago Cheetahs, as well as the 2017 18u Chicago Cheetahs with Brian Bowman. I also give pitching lessons for girls ranging from the ages of 10-18 years old. With my travel ball career over, coaching is my way of giving back to the game and I couldn’t be more excited!
