WNC pitcher and Carson High grad Cassie Vondrak has signed a letter of intent to play for Long Island University, Brooklyn in 2012. LIU Softball is a Division I program with a track record of being a top team in the Northeast Conference. In 2010, LIU fell just one game short of earning a spot the College World Series.
Coach Leah Wentworth, a LIU alum herself, is thrilled to have Vondrak following in her footsteps. "She has the natural ability to compete against D-1 athletes, and with Roy and Bill's (LIU coaching staff) help, I believe she will be a big help to the team."
The opportunity to continue pursuit of her dream means the world to Vondrak, and she credits the Wildcats program for preparing her for this next step. "WNC has provided me work on my pitching and hitting mechanics, and I've learned the work it takes to be successful at the next level."
Vondrak will focus her studies on physical therapy at LIU.
