Why Wisconsin?

"I chose Wisconsin because of the family atmosphere of the entire program. The girls and coaches become your family away from home, and being from California missing my family happens quite a lot. They are always there for you and are very supportive and uplifting."

Off the Field with Stefanni

Before each game, I: I have to blast music either in my headphones or in my car to get me pumped for the game. I listen to anything from country, rap, hip-hop and my favorite music in Spanish (reminds me of my family and my reason of why I love the game so much.)

Favorite Coach quote: "If you don't know, you don't care to know." Coach Schneider always pushes us to continue to keep growing in learning the game, have a great database of the game.

A non-athletic talent I have: I am a great cook. Every time I cook dinner I pretend that I am a Chef and I chop my food very quickly and I get very fancy when I flip my food on the skillet.

Favorite softball moment: My favorite softball moment is when I came in to pinch hit against Michigan my freshman year during the semi-final game and hit a grand slam to get the team rolling to beat Michigan, 9-3.

Greatest fear: Not pushing myself to be the best that I can be.
