"My team really makes it more enjoyable," said Emily.
Emily's competitive side has earned her seven letters. She said she loves both soccer and fastpitch equally, but enjoys the intensity of softball.
"With soccer you don't really score as often and softball is more high scoring, so it's more exciting," said Emily.
Emily started playing ball when she was just a little girl. She said her mother is her inspiration.
"She goes to all of my games and and got me started with it," said Emily.
Emily spends most of her time playing first base and sets her expectations high.
"Getting first at district would be really cool, but just going to State is the main goal right now," said Emily.
