Why Lehigh? “I love the architecture and the small town feel of Bethlehem. Coach Troyan was a big reason for my final choice because he is the nicest person I have ever met.”
On Coach Troyan: “He may seem very sweet and calm when you first meet him but once you get to know him you realize that he is also hilarious and super energetic. He wants nothing but the best for everyone and would do anything to help others out, especially his players.”
On the Lehigh softball experience: “I have heard nothing but great things about this team. When Coach Troyan first recruited me he told me that the girls are a family and that he likes to think of himself as the father figure. As soon as I got here I knew I’d joined the family and couldn’t wait to play the sport I love with these girls.”
In high school: Four year varsity player… four year scholar athlete… played travel softball for OC Lionettes.
Personal: Daughter of Carmen Morast and Thayne Zito… enjoys photography, fashion and cosmetics.
