Making the Cut – Jordan Butters
It is a very challenging transition to move from high school athletics to the collegiate level. In Women’s softball, only 5.4% of players in high school move on to play in college. Jordan Butters, a 2015 Wellsboro graduate just completed her freshman year at Keuka College.
In high school, Butters was a part of a team that brought home the first District Title in school history. The group of girls she was with had been together since she was 8 years old. “One of our biggest goals as a group was to win districts,” Butters said, “ I felt really honored to be a part of that team.”
Upon graduating, Jordan Butters attended Keuka College. She is the only non-New York student on the team. “I chose Keuka because I wanted to major in occupational therapy, and (Keuka) havs 5-year Masters program.” Butters stated, “I contacted the coach and decided to play softball as well.”
The most difficult challenge for Butters was time management. “In college it was a lot more time consuming. You have to be dedicated to the sports and academics to be able to balance it out.”
Butters added that her best advice would be to “find a college that fits you academically, then pursue the sport you would like to play.”
