QUOTING PRESTO ON PENN STATE
"I chose Penn State because I love the big atmosphere, the academics and softball program is top notch here."
QUOTING PETRINI ON PRESTO
"Liz has continued to develop behind the plate, but perhaps has made her biggest strides offensively. Her power is incredible, and with an additional year of experience at this level under her belt, she has the opportunity to come into her own. She has a cannon for an arm behind the plate and is continuing to learn to command the game."
