Q: Do you enjoy playing a sport for Carlmont? 

A:  I love playing for Carlmont because my coaches are so dedicated to our team, and it feels great to be representing a known school.

A: I've always motivated myself to keep playing, and had to convince my parents to let me continue playing. 

Q: Do you play on an outside competitive softball team outside of school?

A: In the past I have played with other teams outside Carlmont, but this summer I'm going to Costa Rica to help preserve the wildlife. I'll definitely be practicing over the summer, though. 

Q: Have you played Carlmont softball since your freshmen year?

A: I started playing softball for Carlmont sophomore year. I unfortunately didn't make the team my freshman year, but I practiced hard with my travel team, and am now a captain of the varsity team.
