After finishing her senior year with Cardington, Brooklyn Whitt will move on to Kent State University, where she will resume her softball career.
She noted that Kent State started looking like an attractive destination after she attended a softball camp there.
“I took my first softball camp there and thought it’d be pretty cool if I went there,” she said Wednesday when she signed her letter of intent. “When I visited, I loved the campus and wanted to be part of their softball family.”
She added that there were a lot of aspects to the campus that she enjoyed.
“The people were really cool and nice,” she said. “It was a good, fun environment that I liked; also, downtown Kent is really nice and has lots to do.”
The Pirate senior is expecting to be a utility player who could see action at any number of infield and outfield positions.
“I’m pretty much utility now, playing where I’m needed,” she said. “So I’ll have to see when I get there where I’ll be playing.”
Whitt is currently undecided on a major, but considering earning a bachelor’s degree in a field related to science and medicine.
“I’m really just looking forward to the experience and college life and college softball,” she said.
When it comes to making the adjustment from high school life to that in college, Whitt mentioned that it will take some work.
“Probably having to be independent and living on my own,” she said when asked what would be the toughest adjustment. “It’ll be a lot of work. I’ll probably be busy a lot more.”
