Softball Star Strikes Right Fields
When adventure calls, softball superstar Kim Connelly will be ready. The Beaverton, Ore., native, who sees the Peace Corps in her future, plans to pursue environmental and international law after she graduates in December 2009. The senior history major and political science minor has played softball since age 5. And as soon as she has time in her schedule, she wants to take up surfing. In her debut season, Kim won the team triple crown and led the Islanders in hitting with a .357 batting average, seven home runs and 38 runs batted in. She is also a member of the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee. Prior to arriving at the Island University in fall 2007, Kim played at the College of the Siskiyous in California where she was named to the All-Golden Valley Conference, All-Nor-Cal and All-America teams. Kim and the other Islander softball players share common goals including hard work, dedication and a passion to win. In her spare time, Kim loves playing Frisbee and participating in other sports.
