Favorite Quote: "I have been wounded, not slain. I shall lie here and bleed awhile, then I shall rise again and fight. The title of a champion may from time to time fall to others more than myself, but the heart, the spirit, and the soul of a champion shall remain within me. For my greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time I fall."

Why I Chose Lafayette: I chose to come to Lafayette because of its reputation for academic excellence and because of its softball program. Lafayette encompassed everything that I was looking for in a college.
