Softball pitcher takes next step at Harvard

Softball pitcher Maddy Kaplan ’14 issued a letter of intent to Harvard College  Oct. 15. Kaplan helped lead the Wolverines to the Mission League Title in 2012, accumulating eight wins on the mound. The varsity team captain was selected First Team All-League in 2012. Kaplan is looking to continue her dominance on the mound for the Wolverines in the 2014 season and into her college years at Harvard.

“I think that, for me, it was a really good fit and the people there are really nice. I really like the location. It combines great academics and great athletics,” Kaplan said. “I have been going to camp at Harvard since I was in ninth grade and have remained in touch with the coach for a really long time. So, the main appeal was that I really liked the coach, along with the entire staff and the assistant coaches.”
