Seraphina Ricci, going to Ave Maria University in Florida. She says the most stressful part was the recruiting process, including writing emails every weekend and trying to get the attention of coaches.
Q: What was the most rewarding aspect?
The most rewarding part is definitely signing the Letter of Intent you have been waiting to sign for several years. Also being able to tell those who doubted you that you made it.
Q: Is there anyone you’d like to extend thanks to?
A: “I would like to thank my parents. My mom because she brought me to all my games and encouraged me through the hard times to keep moving forward. My dad because he was always my biggest fan and kept me going. Lastly, I would like to thank my brothers for always being an inspiration to me and being the people i look up to the most.”
Q: What drew you to Ave Maria, and what are you looking forward to?
A: “The coach and the girls on the team were a huge part of my decision. The campus is also very beautiful and the students have a lot of freedom. I’m looking forward to meeting new people, and also leaving the Irvine bubble for a while. After college though I do plan on coming back to live here.”
