Cleats clinging to bags and bats scattered around the field provides a clear sign that the beloved softball season has arrived. Despite the constant weather changes and canceld games this year, the Cannon Falls Bomber Softball team still has the determination to play throughout the struggles. Every athlete dreams of achievement, whether that is hitting a home run or pitching out the best hitter, although some carry it further. Abby Breuer, a senior this year at Cannon Falls Highschool, has luckily accomplished her dream of playing in college athletics. 

An neverending recruiting process, and several decisions later Breuer settled on her future– Upper Iowa University, home of the Peacocks. “The recruiting process definitely had its highs and lows. I was grateful to receive multiple offers throughout it, but being in the recruiting process during COVID was extremely frustrating. I learned to trust the process and in return, I was able to find a school that was a perfect fit for me,” Breuer stated, reminiscing on the difficult time many endured during the outbreak of COVID 19. She also discovered her future major, with a spot in the Pre-Physicians Assistant Program. “ Honestly, I am so excited for everything,” she exclaims.

Breuer thoroughly explained her passion for the sport, and the love that goes into it personally for her. “This has been a goal of mine since I was little,” Breuer describes. “ I would always watch collegiate softball players on T.V. and just admire them. I’ve grown up playing this game and worked very hard, so I am very fortunate to be given the opportunity to continue playing throughout college.” Abby Breuer is preparing herself this highschool season for the leap into college sports, competing with talented girls from a multitude of places. With playing softball for six years, including playing on competitive travel teams all year round, Breuer’s love for the sport has continued to evolve, pushing her to the collegiate level.
