Wellsboro's Smith signs with Millersville
When it came to picking a place to play college softball, Wellsboro's Maggie Smith chose a school that had everything she wanted.
The Green Hornets standout will continue her softball career next season at Millersville University.
"I visited the campus with my parents a few weeks ago," she said. "I loved the campus when I got there, I liked the atmosphere and I liked their educational programs."
One other thing that helped the decision was the chance to play in the PSAC with a number of games close enough for family and friends to watch her play.
"I am so excited about that," she said. "My parents can come and watch me play."
Smith is also excited to get a chance to face a number of former NTL players who compete in the PSAC.
"I am excited about that to," she said. "It will be a little different kind of competition."
And, having seen some players from the league excel in the conference gives her confidence she can also succeed in the league.
Right now Smith is just excited to get her college career started.
"I am not sure whta it's going to be like, but I'm really excited about it," she said. "I'm just excited to almost get started already."
Smith isn't sure what her role will be at Millersville, but she's okay with anything she's asked to do.
"I will go wherever I am needed," she said. "I will do wahtever role I need to be on the team."
This year Smith has some things she still wants to work on before college.
"I am just trying to improve almost everything and be at the top of my level when I enter and start playing," she said.
Having her college decision made helps make her senior year of softball a little more enjoyable.
"All the pressure is off," she said. "I'm really excited, now my senior year of softball can just be really fun."
