“SOFTBALL HAS BEEN A PART OF MY LIFE FOR ABOUT 11 YEARS. AND SINCE PLAYING THE SPORT, I’VE ALWAYS FELT AT HOME.  ONE OF MY BIGGEST GOALS HAS BEEN TO RECEIVE A SCHOLARSHIP OR CONTINUE TO PLAY SOFTBALL THROUGHOUT COLLEGE.  I HAVE MET SO MANY PEOPLE AND LIFELONG FRIENDS THROUGH TRAVEL BALL, AS WELL AS ENJOYING MANY GREAT MOMENTS.  EVEN THOUGH I HAVE FACED CHALLENGES, HARDSHIPS AND OBSTACLES, SOFTBALL WILL FOREVER HAVE A SPECIAL PLACE IN MY HEART.  I OWE THIS SPORT FOR MAKING ME A BETTER TEAMMATE, ATHLETE AND ALL-AROUND PERSON.” – TESSA McLAUGHLIN
