Tekamah-Herman Softball Standout Ashley Bohannon is headed to Wayne State. Bohannon says the opportunity is beyond her wildest dreams. “Going to play Softball in College has always been a goal of mine. And I just didn’t know where I’d end up at. I knew I had a good chance of Community School or possibly a Division III, but I never expected a Division II, which is really awesome for me to be able to go to Wayne.”
Bohannon says she’ll pitch for the Wildcats. She went 22-8 and posted a 2.45 ERA in her senior season for the Tigers.
Bohannon says she looks forward to growing as a player and in her relationships with her teammates and the coaching staff. “Just to be able to keep doing the sport I love and keep improving was something that I put so many hours into throughout the years with doing softball year round. And just always having the support of teammates, and looking forward to these new coaches, and being able to take it up to the next level.”
Bohannon says she also looked at UNK and Northwest Missouri State, but chose WSC because it felt like home, among other reasons.
She hopes to leave her mark on the program in a way that exemplifies her work ethic. “I hope to leave an impact of hard work and determination because that’s what it took to get to be able to play at Wayne, and I hope I can continue to do that and show the coaches and other fans and teammates that hard work truly does help you reach your goals. And I’m just very thankful to get the opportunity to continue playing.”
Bohannon was also a standout basketball player for the Tigers.
