• What do you like most about ECU? “I like how connected and involved East Central University feels with everyone in it. I also like how the athletic program cares most about making sure I graduate with a degree that I want, and how they are willing to work with both my athletic, and class schedule to make it happen.”

In my college softball career, I would first like to win a conference championship, and then work our way up to a national appearance and win a national championship.”
