Delaney Morgan, who has been playing softball for about 12 years; signed to Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, which competes in NCAA Division II softball. The most stressful aspect, she says, is balancing workouts, practices, and games with school and other responsibilities; and the most rewarding feeling came from stepping onto the field with her best friends every weekend to play the game they mutually loved.
Q: What is something you learned throughout this process?
A: “Perseverance has been the number one lesson I have learned throughout the process. Softball is one of those sports that is a rollercoaster of performance. You will always have those days or weeks where you know you aren’t playing up to your potential, and knowing how to persevere and work through those times is crucial.”
Q: Why did you choose Embry-Riddle?
A: “Choosing Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University had to be the easiest choice I have made. I fell in love with the school the second I stepped on campus, and getting to know the coaches made the decision even easier. ERAU offered me strong athletics coupled with competitive academics and the promise of post graduate connections.”
