On signing with the softball team...
"I'm nervous but also excited to go to school at SMWC. I look forward to meeting my teammates and seeing what my future holds. Coach Walker was extremely nice throughout this whole recruiting process and always reminded me that this was my decision and mine only. I never felt pressured to commit. I knew that I would be welcomed at the school and that Coach Walker would push and help me to be the best player I can be. I'm very excited to start playing! I would like to thank my Junior College coach, John Barnes. He always reminded me that a starting spot on the team is never given to you and can easily be taken by a better player. This always pushed me to try my best and prove I needed to be in the spot I was in. I want to thank him for being a great coach to me for what feels like my whole life. I can't wait to see what my future holds at SMWC."
