Softball Update

July 23, 2010 Uncategorized 5

Adrienne has been playing so hard this summer, and I am so proud of her. 
The second weekend in July we were in Jacksonville and that is when the excitement started.  She went to a camp for 2 days led by college coaches, some she knew, and others she just met.  Her travel coaches told her that coaches were impressed with her and looking at her.  She played well in the two day tournament following the camp as well. 
On Monday she started receiving emails from colleges…..and Adrienne was so excited she was about to bust.  The University of North Alabama saw her and thinks she could be a good addition to their team.  They invited us up to visit.  Frances Marion, a state school in SC saw her and has requested more information and a skills video.  A state college near Orlando emailed her, she wants her to come over after summer ball is over.  Their sports are still just 2 years, CC. 
Last weekend we were in Ft. Lauderdale and she was offered a full scholarship to another state college in Sarasota, south of Tampa.  We plan to visit the school to learn more.

This is why she plays, this is why we pay to participate and travel, in hopes that she will earn a college scholarship and play at the next level.  Wish us luck!!!

    Wahoo! YAY, Adrienne. That is so impressive. How exciting to have so many colleges interested and offering scholarships. It must feel so wonderful to see all of her (and your) hard work and dedication paying off. You must be so proud. I’m so happy for all of you.
