Point Park University’s softball team has strong, individual players, but its unity is what really shines. “In previous years, we weren’t as close as we are this year,” explains senior Ashley Morran. “We need to work on talking more and being more of a team, but we all get along so that’ll be easy.” The captain stepped up as a leader in improving team dynamics, organizing team bonding exercises and outings. She’s also stepping up to the plate as a two-time National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) Softball Honorable Mention All-American and the 2013 Kentucky Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (KIAC) Player of the Year, leading the KIAC in RBIs, runs, and home runs. Morran and the speedy Pioneers will rely on their strong short game this year, but communication is key to keep the season flawless. “If we work as a team and stay together, we’ll be perfect.”
