Why You Chose CMS Softball: I knew as soon as I began talking to Coach that this would be an atmosphere in which I would thrive: The Claremont Colleges are truly special in the sense that successes and opportunities are incredibly abundant. The same thing is true for CMS softball. After watching practices and games, meeting players and coaches, and spending a night on campus, it was clear that the entire program embodied an environment of positivity and dedication that I knew I would flourish in. On top of all that, CMC’s beautiful campus in the sunny, Southern California weather is second to none. I couldn’t have picked a more perfect school or a more perfect team.
