Making the Cut – Kate Reese

by Drew Patrick - July 18, 2016

Moving on from high school to play at the collegiate level is already an amazing athletic accomplishment. It is extremely rare to see an athlete play on two athletic teams. On this edition of Making the Cut we introduce an athlete who overcame the odds! Kate Reese is a 2008 graduate of Wellsboro High School who went on play at Susquehanna University and competed in volleyball and softball.

Reese overcame several challenges between the two sports. “It was difficult to manage my time,” she stated. “(I) had a total of 6 weeks off during the school year. And most of that was Christmas break.”

While time management was the most pressing transition, there still were many on field & court transitions. Concerning volleyball, Reese stated that the “level of play was the biggest change.” In terms of softball, her biggest challenge was the pitching. “The pitching was so much better than high school. That was pretty evident when we got to the conference championships,” said Reese. However, the academic transition wasn’t as difficult for Reese. “In the first year I was taking many (general) education classes, so it felt like an extension of my senior year.”

Reese is starting a new transition as she is on the Wellsboro softball coaching staff. “It’s been amazing. It’s been a treat to work with the girls.”

As a volleyball athlete, softball athlete and coach, Reese had some great advice for prospective students. “Don’t be afraid to ask for help, any bit of help can go a long way.”
