What’s One Part Of Your Game That You Feel You’ve Improved The Most This Fall?
"Mental game. Everything that we do with Duke softball, from our daily lifts and practices to the little things off of the field all contribute to our mental game and toughness. By pushing myself daily, I am able to improve my mentality which will translate come spring season."
Describe What It Was Like To Be A Part Of The Program’s Inaugural Game On Sept. 30.
"Everything leading up to the start of the game that day was perfect, and the atmosphere of the entire stadium completely packed was like no other. Seeing how much love and support we had from our school and the surrounding community was amazing, especially from other athletes at Duke."
What’s One Personal Goal You Have Set For Yourself During The 2018 Season?
"To be a pitcher that can get it done in any given situation, no matter who our opponent is. I want my teammates to know they can rely on me no matter what and for batters to fear hitting against me."
What Does It Mean To You To Be A Part Of Team One?
"It is the opportunity of a lifetime that only a few of us are able to share, which makes me appreciate the love I have for softball so much more and those I get to share the field with every single day. Still to this day I think to myself, 'wow I’m really at Duke playing softball' and I still haven't wrapped my head around it completely. I don’t think it ever will honestly."
