Why did you choose Georgetown? Georgetown is the total package: a world-class education while competing at the highest collegiate level at the same time. This is a potential college athlete’s dream come true. You can put us head-to-head against any university out there with our prestigious rankings and uncanny tradition and we are second to none.
What is something that has brought your team together? The Thompson Center is just the first step in creating a more unified athletics department and honoring those who came before us. We now have a place for all student-athletes to do work, hang out, and get to know others from different teams.
What community service does your team participate in? For the past three years, we have volunteered at the Nationals Youth Baseball Academy teaching underprivileged kids different softball/baseball skills and tutoring them. This is our way of reaching out in the DC community and spreading our knowledge and love of our sport.
How do you give 110% for Georgetown? As a member of the softball team and Vice President of SAAC, I give 110% for Georgetown by being a voice for others to better my team and our community.
What would you like to say to donors to Georgetown Athletics? Thank you to all of our donors for making our experience here at Georgetown an unforgettable one. Without your constant support, we would not be performing at the level we are today and being national leaders in all aspects.
