Savannah Ringheden has been playing softball for the past twelve years, spending four of those years proudly representing the Wahawk softball team.
After dedicating her high school career to playing softball for West High, Ringheden committed to Hawkeye Community College to continue on her academic and athletic career in college.
After visiting with the Hawkeye Community College coaches, Ringheden made her decision to commit based on a variety of factors. Ringheden states that she is most excited for what college will bring her athletic ability, “Learning from other coaches and meeting new teammates. Also being a part of Hawkeye’s first ever softball team!”
As she leaves the Wahawk softball team, Ringheden shares the impact that her teammates have left on her. “The softball program here at West taught me mental toughness and with this trait moving forward, I believe I can gain even more love with this sport,” she shares.
Alongside her peers, Ringheden notes the sadness that comes with graduating high school and moving forward onto college. “The energy that everyone brings when it comes to not just softball but all athletics here,” she said. Many of the softball athletes agree that their team is what they will miss most when they move on.
