And the winner is... Katie Lee!!

BeRecruited is proud to announce the winner of this week’s Athlete of the Week competition – Katie Lee, #32!! Katie had just over 125 people “like” her photo to edge out last week's competition. (And it was definitely a close one!)

Here is a Q & A with our winner…

Q: Tell us a little bit about yourself. How long have you been playing and when did you realize you wanted to play in college?

A: I've been playing softball since I was 5 years old, starting off playing tee-ball. About 4 years ago I started playing travel softball. It was then that I realized that I wanted to continue to play softball after high school, and to play in the women's college world series.  

Q: Tell us about your current high school team.

A: My team is different than most. I go to a small private school and we have known each other since we started school. Most of us play summer league together, as well. We are extremely close. It's like a family on the field and we all feed off of each other. 

Q: What are you looking for in a collegiate program?

A: I am looking for a program that will push me to be successful and the best I can be. 

Q: Do you know what you want to major in? If so, what?

A: Yes, I have known for about four years - Pharmacy. 

Q: What 3 words would you use to describe yourself as a student-athlete?

A: Dedicated. Passionate. Hardworking. 

Q: Describe for us your recruiting process thus far -- what have you been doing?

A: So far, I have a highlight DVD prepared along with my player profile which has my stats.  I attend a lot of softball camps and I have four camps scheduled between now and the end of January. 

I am also focusing on maintaining a great GPA and I will be re-taking my ACT test to better my score.  I also continue to work with my batting coach and speed and agility training. 

I will do whatever it takes to play college softball!

Q: What do you like most about the BeRecruited service?

A: I like that BeRecruited has helped me to connect with universities and coaches all across the country, and coming from a small private school, I probably would not have had the opportunity to connect with a lot of these universities and coaches otherwise.
