Why She Chose CMS Softball: The team is a perfect balance between being extremely committed to schoolwork/career goals and being extremely committed to the game, each other, and our personal growth as players. We push each other until--as coach would say--"every last drop of our oranges are squeezed." What I learn on the softball field (teamwork, sacrifice, leadership, cooperation, playing through adversity) are lessons I would never learn in a classroom.

Favorite Quote: "Work diligently, intelligently, patiently, persistently, continuously. There is no shortcut for hard work." - Betsy Hipple
Person She Admires Most: My Nana.
One Dream She Cherishes: To fulfill this quote: "To laugh often and much; To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; To earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; To appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded." - Ralph Waldo Emerson.
