My College Freshman Experience - Softball and Beyond

Posted by Pitbulls Fastpitch on November 7, 2019 at 10:40 PM

Being a freshman at college has challenges, but holding the title of a student-athlete possesses its own difficulties. I have learned and experienced both the joys and hardships of playing softball and being committed to academics in my first semester as a student-athlete at Albright College.


The fall season for division three softball is short, but fast-paced. Our schedule consisted of sixteen practices that included two hour hitting/fielding practices, three days a week starting in September. Lifting also began around that time twice a week at six AM, and continued even after the fall season concluded. On top of all of the practices, lifts, fall play day, and team meetings and events, I still had four classes and my own responsibilities to keep up with. Being a student-athlete is definitely a challenge, but the reward of playing my sport with other girls who are as dedicated as I am is invaluable. I have truly enjoyed my first experiences on the field and cannot wait for what is to come in the regular season.


One of the biggest challenges I have faced thus far is finding the perfect balance of academics, social life, and softball life. I have had to develop time-management skills to adjust and find what strategies worked for me in what I needed to accomplish. I have learned that being a student-athlete involves sacrifice for your sport; however, with that sacrifice comes great reward that is proven at game time.


Overall, as a freshman, I felt beyond prepared for what I have experienced so far in my first semester at Albright. Pitbulls Fastpitch and the in-depth recruiting program we completed as players is truly unique in its own. Every resource that I was exposed to since I joined the team in my junior year of high school prepared me for both academic and athletic success.


Reflecting on my first couple months of college, I am more than happy with the place that I am in. I am forever grateful that I went through the recruiting process because I learned and experienced so much that I can apply to real-life situations in the future. Preparation is one of the most important keys to success in athletics and beyond, and I believe that I was more than prepared for what was thrown my way.

The matrix time I byword Gail Dines discourse with, at a talk in Boston, she moved the audience to tears with her characterization of the problems caused by means of obscenity, and provoked laughing with her spicy observations near pornographers themselves. Activists in the audience were newly inspired, and men at the conclusion – sundry of whom had on no account viewed obscenity as a muddle in advance of – queued up afterwards to guaranty their support. The display highlighted Dines's tense charisma and the factually that, since the expiry of Andrea Dworkin, she has risen to that most sensitive and interesting of public roles: the world's foremost anti-pornography campaigner.

The pattern over and over again I saw Gail Dines discourse with, at a conference in Boston, she moved the audience to tears with her description of the problems caused by means of porn, and provoked sniggering with her spicy observations about pornographers themselves. Activists in the audience were newly inspired, and men at the conclusion – sundry of whom had not till hell freezes over viewed porn as a problem in the vanguard – queued up afterwards to guarantee their support. The exhibition highlighted Dines's unsound charisma and the factually that, since the death of Andrea Dworkin, she has risen to that most baffling and spellbinding of free roles: the community's paramount anti-pornography campaigner.
