Plymouth Whitemarsh High School (PWHS) senior Carly Rosenberger has signed a letter of intent to play softball at Emerson College in Boston next year. The Lions have gone to postseason play in 16 of the last 20 years and has been named the nation's top academic softball team by the National Fastpitch Coaches Association six times.
A middle infielder for the Colonials, Rosenberger is a four-year varsity player who was named All League Honorable Mention as a sophomore and Team Captain as a junior. While her favorite thing about the sport is the adrenaline rush from sliding and diving into bases, Rosenberger says that softball has also taught her to be more serious and focused on and off the field.
"She's easily one of the hardest working student athletes I've come across at PW," said PWHS Teacher and Assistant Baseball Coach Anthony Musumeci. "I couldn't be prouder of her!"
Rosenberger started her softball career in third grade and currently plays on the Pennsbury Gems, one of the premiere travel teams in the area.
A member of the top 10% of her class, Rosenberger also belongs to the National Honor Society, National Art Honor Society, Photo Club, Simon's Heart Club and Mini-THON. She was accepted into the Honors Program at Emerson College and received the school's prestigious Trustee's Scholarship. She plans to study International Business, Marketing, Communications and the Arts in Emerson's Business of Creative Enterprises program.
