Who are you?

I am a very goal oriented, focused person and I am always my biggest critic. I am constantly trying to improve. I love my family, my faith and my friends.



How did your softball journey begin?

I started playing softball when I was 6 years old. I was pretty good and loved playing with my friends and making new ones.

10u - In love with the game!


What are your greatest strengths as a softball player?

On offense, one of my strengths is being patient at the plate and waiting for the right pitch. My

quality at bat percentage is pretty high. This has helped me to be more selective on pitches. I also am proud that I can hit to all fields with pretty good power.



On defense, one of my strengths is reading the ball well off the bat which allows me to get a good jump on balls hit to the gaps in the outfield. I also have a good and accurate throwing arm.



What kind of hitter are you and what are your most recent offensive stats?

I am a contact hitter who is not afraid to be in a two-strike count. I really work at hitting the ball hard to all fields.

My 2023 high school season stats were the following: BA (.575); OBP (.620); SLG (.925); OPS (1.545); 46 Hits including 15 Doubles; 2 Triples; 3 HR’s.


Solid contact to any part of the field


What is your favorite sports memory and greatest achievement?

My favorite sports memory was hitting a home run against Team USA last year in the TCS

International Challenge while playing for Team Mexico. We had two outs in our last at bat and I hit the game tying 2 run HR. What made it so memorable was the deafening noise from the Team Mexico fans. It was really special.

How do you handle adversity and even failure?

I handle it well. I really try to look ahead rather than dwell on the past. I choose to use adversity and failure as a learning opportunity to do better next time. This has helped me with softball and in life.



How would your teammates and friends describe you?

They would describe me as kind, funny, athletic, good teammate and supportive.


Fun with 2025 high school teammates


Who is your role-model and or idol and why?

My role-models are my parents. They have shown me that no matter how tough life may get, there is always something to be grateful for or look up to. They’ve taught me what hard work and dedication can bring, and they have inspired me to be the best version of myself.

If you could spend a day with any softball player, former or current, who would it be and why?

I would love to spend a day with Montana Fouts. I have watched her play, have seen her interviewed and have read her social media posts. To me, Montana Fouts is the perfect role model. She is a great competitor. She is a great teammate. She always gives credit to others before herself. She is loyal and she is an incredible person. I would love to soak in all that I could by spending a day with her.

What is your softball dream/goal?

My short-term goal would be to win Premier Girls Fastpitch (PGF) Nationals with my BSC Bengals team.

My longer-term softball dream would be to play in college and maybe some day play in a Womens College World Series (WCWS).


Loving the game


When deciding on what college team to play for what are the most important things you’re looking for?

I am looking for a college team that supports academic achievement. A good team chemistry is also very important to me. You need to have it to be successful and it is driven by having a great coaching staff that teaches what good chemistry can do for a team.



What is your favorite jersey number and why did you choose it?

My favorite number is 10. I was 10 years old when I chose this number and that year our rec All-Star Team almost won Nationals so it has stuck ever since.



What other hobbies do you have to balance out softball and your personal life?

I love hanging out with my friends. Riding bikes. Going to the beach. Playing ping pong and doing crafts.

Who would you like to thank for your softball achievements and support?

I would like to thank my dad for my softball achievements because he has believed in me since I was just a little girl. Without his loving support and guidance, I would not be the player I am today.
