Quotable: “I liked the campus when I visited and it felt like it fit me. They don't have a catcher returning, so they are looking for me to be the starter. I will always remember the district championship my sophomore year and all the friends I've made at Santa Fe.”— Lake Hart

Led the Rams to a district title and the regional quarterfinals during her senior season. Has a 4.6 GPA in Eastside's IB program and plans to major in biochemistry.

Quotable: “I got on the campus and I clicked with the girls automatically. The coach has always been nice and has emailed me. It felt like family up there. If I am going to move so far away, way not make it feel like family. What I will remember from Eastside is playing with Em (Emma Lannon) for four years, we were district champs this year and last year, which was huge for us. I have literally had a different coach every year.”— Alex Mueller
