Athlete of the week: Sarah Harrison

The Scoop: Harrison is a junior pitcher on the Le Moyne College Softball team. This Canandaigua native knew from a young age that being a softball pitcher was her thing. “At my first ever Little League softball practice, my coach had everyone try to pitch. I caught on pretty quick and never looked back.” Harrison has carried that drive all the way to the college level where you can find her on the mound wearing that #16. Harrison has impressively pitched 87.2 of the Dolphins 101 innings this year and has contributed to the teams 8 wins. She has played in all 19 games and has started for 17 of them. Harrison averages 9.12 strikeouts per game and has an almost perfect fielding percentage. She has had no wild pitches thus far and has only registered two errors.

How she got started: “I am a triplet and my sisters and I had always done every activity together, so I wanted to find something fun that I could do individually. I had heard that there were Little League tryouts going on in my town, so I decided to give it a try.”


Major and future plans: Harrison is a psychology major with a concentration in Elementary and Special Education. After graduation she plans to go to graduate school to earn a Master’s Degree in her field. After that, she hopes to get a job in teaching.


Person who has had the greatest impact on Sarah: Her Dad. “From day one, he has been actively involved from taking me to my pitching lessons, assisting my travel ball coaches whenever necessary, devoting countless weekends to traveling and tournaments, and managing to make almost every game to this day. He encourages me to work hard, strive for my best, and to never settle.”


Goals she has reached and what she hopes to achieve: “Last season we made the NE-10 Championship game after having a rough first half of the season. This season, goals that we are working towards include NE-10 Championships, Regionals, Super-Regionals, and ultimately the College World Series!”


 Advice to other players: “My advice for other players would be to never take the game for granted. 50 games a season flies faster than I would have ever imagined before starting college, so try to enjoy and learn from every moment of it.”


Sarah’s pregame rituals: “Before every game, one of my teammates does my hair and ties my ribbon.  I also have the same exact pitching warm-up before every game that I start.”


Most memorable softball moment: “My most memorable moment is definitely beating Southern Connecticut last year to advance in the winners bracket of the NE-10 Tournament. We came from behind and pulled off the upset in the last inning of the game.”
