DIAMOND BAR, CA—Diamond Bar High School softball standout Andrea Gonzalez will soon take her game to the collegiate field.
Gonzalez scored a full-ride softball scholarship to William Penn University in Iowa.
The 18-year-old pitcher signed a national letter of intent during a ceremony with coaches, family, and teammates on June 9.
“I’m so excited!” the proud athlete and recent grad exclaimed before making it official.
Although Gonzalez had several offers, she chose William Penn for its outstanding reputation and plans to enter the school’s nursing program.
“It’s a really good school,” she said.
Gonzales played all four years on the DBHS varsity team.
“She’ll be missed, but I’m looking forward to seeing her carry on the Brahma tradition of playing at the next level,” said coach Roberta Garcia.
