Softball Story (How did you get started? Tell us about you-
I started playing softball when I was eight with Ridgefield Little League and then when I was ten, I went to go play club for Rampage. Ever since then I have been getting great coaching and am proud of how far I have come.
Favorite Softball memory-
My favorite softball memory was during my freshman year in high school season. We were playing in the third-place districts game against or league rival. Whoever lost this game would be done for the season. It was in the bottom of the 7th inning and we had our top 5 of the lineup up to bat. The first two get on, and a senior batting third hits a homerun! Next batter, homerun. Now me, the freshman was up to bat. I have to follow the best two seniors’ homeruns. First pitch, homerun! My first ever career homerun! I walked off districts as a freshman. The team was so excited and I loved every moment.

What is the Alliance Fastpitch Player Recognition Program?
The Player Recognition Program was built to recognize and spotlight our individual players in each Member League. Each month, registered Alliance Fastpitch coaches can nominate a player from their age division. League Leadership will review nominations and a monthly stats report from AthletesGoLive (AGL) to determine the League’s Player of the Month.
Following the announcement of each League’s Players of the Month, the Alliance Fastpitch will recognize a National Player of the Month.
To be considered for Player of the Month, your team must score League games in AGL so your stats will be included in the League’s monthly report.
