  • WHAT DOES A TYPICAL TRAINING DAY LOOK LIKE FOR YOU? 

“I wake up early, usually around 7:30am, and make a light breakfast. I either head to class in the nursing building or do school work at the library. After class and studying, I have strength & conditioning training with Coach Dustin followed by lunch. I then head back to the library to work on any assignments I have and study for exams. We then have practice at the field or fieldhouse. After practice, the team will go to Callahan for dinner. Finally, I’ll end the night with any unfinished school work, studying, and/or hanging out with friends before heading to bed.”

 

  • WHAT IS YOUR WEEKLY TRAINING SCHEDULE? 

“I have strength & conditioning training from 10-11am on Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. I have practice Monday-Friday from 4-6pm and morning practices on Saturday. Once the season starts, we typically have games Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. In my freetime, I like to do yoga and meditation.”

 

  • WHY DID YOU CHOOSE TO COME TO ENDICOTT?

“I chose Endicott College because they provided me with the most amazing opportunities and support to accomplish my goals. The School of Nursing at Endicott has supported me to achieve high academics and has given me opportunities to experience some of the best clinical placements, such as Boston Children’s Hospital, Brigham Hospital, Spaulding Rehab Facility, Beverly Hospital, and so many more. They also supported my decision to go abroad to Italy while making sure I stayed on track with my academics to graduate this Spring. With all of this, I was still able to follow my dreams of being a collegiate athlete and play on a championship softball team with teammates and coaches that have made a lasting impact on me.” 

 

  • HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN PLAYING SOFTBALL?

“I have been playing softball for as long as I can remember! I started playing Little League in Orange, CT at 5-years-old until about 12-years-old. I started playing travel softball around 10-years-old and continued until I went to college. I also played for the Amity Middle School and Amity High School softball teams.”

 

  • WHAT IS YOUR BEST SPORTING MOMENT? 

“I’ve had so many great sporting moments, but one that was particularly memorable for me was when my high school softball team at Amity High School won the Connecticut Class LL State Championship my senior year. This was one of my best moments because the team was made up of players that I have been playing softball with since Little Leagues. We were not highly ranked and were not favorable to win but we worked together as a team and played for the love of the game.” 

 

  • WHO IS YOUR SPORTING HERO?

Derek Jeter; former professional baseball player who spent his entire 20 year Major League Baseball career with the New York Yankees. 

 

This Saturday, April 9th, the Women's Varsity Softball team will play the University of New England at home at 12:00pm. Head over to support the Gulls and look out for Carly in the number 10 jersey.
