QUOTING HABITZ ON PENN STATE
"I chose Penn State because I love the tradition at the school and knowing that I would have an education from a great school."
QUOTING COACH PETRINI
"When I think of Karlie, one phrase immediately comes to mind and that is sheer power. She has a great command behind the plate and simply owns the batter's box on offense. She comes to us from a tremendous travel ball program where powerful hitters are born and bred. Karlie will join former travel teammate Alyssa Sovereign in the blue and white."
