QUOTING VON PUSCH ON PENN STATE
"I chose Penn State because I loved the campus and all the opportunities that the school offers. It has a perfect balance between academics and athletics."
QUOTING COACH PETRINI
"Christy brings the right arm to our class. She has thrown countless no-hitters in her high school season and throws a very hard and heavy ball. She possesses a lot of versatility on defense and has quite a bit of power in her bat. As excited as she is about pitching, she is equally as proud of her academic achievements. I am anxious to see her take the mound and continue her successes as a Nittany Lion."
