Q: What was the most fun part of being a freshman?

Q: What would you do on your "perfect day?"

Q: What do you think is the hardest thing about playing softball?
A: "The competition because everyone is good. In high school, you are probably the top player on the team but when you come to college, everyone is good. It is hard to compete."
