ON WHY UNM: “I chose UNM mostly because of the amazing coaches, but as soon as I visited the campus, I realized this is where I wanted to spend the next four years of my life.

Also, the chemistry the softball team has, especially in welcoming newcomers, is heartwarming and I cannot wait to experience it!”
