College Commitment Alert !!! 

     Grace Rohloff who plays for the Summit City Sluggers 18U has committed to Grace College ,Winona Lake, In. to further her Collegiate academic and softball career.
     Grace epitomizes “Hustle, Heart, Passion and Dedication” Grace came into my program 3 and half years ago. I had this idea because of her great speed to make her a LH Slapper. I also felt that this would help her become a college player. After many, many hours of sweat, tears and a lot of hard work and many extra hours of work on and off the field Grace has accomplished her goal of being a college athlete. 
     Her hustle on everything she does is outstanding. Grace is a great defensive center fielder/second baseman and is a team leader in the dugout. She is a class individual off the field also. She is the kind of athlete that you want in your program.
I want to thank some other people that had a hand helping Grace to achieve her goal.
     Ashley Burkhardt at Ashley Burkhardt Training, Jordan McCray, Holly Weber. Also from Professor Wellness & Fitness Center, Charlie Chapman and Brittany Barron.
Grace will graduate in 2020 from Bishop Dwenger High School, Ft Wayne, In.
