Q: How did you get started in softball?

A: I played little league as a kid. I’ve been involved in everything from t-ball, coach pitch, machine pitch, fast pitch and everything in between.

Q: What was your first team's name?

A: Cardinals or Marlins

Q: What are some of your routines/superstitions on game day or during games?

A: Before: eat a small breakfast/lunch (depending on the time) and listen to music.  Also, I don’t like to do a lot of hitting drills right before a game. During: my dad always brings me a blue Powerade and snickers bar. I always play with at least my left batting glove on (out of habit). I especially don’t like to play without either of them.

Q: What is your favorite softball memory?

A: There are too many to count. Many involve spending time with teammates. One great memory was in high school we finally beat our rivals for the first time in school history!  It was a great accomplishment and showed how hard we had worked.

Q: If you could change one thing about softball, what would it be and why?

A: We don’t have this problem, but I’ve been on teams that had a lot of unnecessary drama. You’re all here to play the same sport that you love, why fight about it?

Q: I wear my uniform number because:

A: I wear the number 3 because it is one of my favorite numbers and my grandfather wore the same number playing basketball and baseball at Centenary.
