Moser: I visited Beloit my senior year of highschool in hopes to find a small school that I could still play softball at. Right when I stepped on campus I knew it was gonna be a great place for me! The team was filled with great people and Coach Zarling was beyond helpful in my college decision process.
RT: When did you start playing softball and how did you get into it?
Moser: I started playing baseball actually when I was 5 years old and ended up switching over to softball halfway through middle school. Even though I did not play on a team till I was 5 I had been playing wiffle ball and t-ball since about the time I started walking.
