“It feels really good to sign (with Penn Tech) because it feels like a good accomplishment to be able to play at the next level.  I chose to sign with them because they have my major and I really like the school,” said Saige about signing.

“Saige continued a long line of great players when she signed to play softball at the next level!  Saige earned a spot at that level and will be a great asset to the Penn Tech College softball team!”  said B-A high school softball coach Jim Payne.

Saige not only excels in softball, but she also competes on the Tyrone/Bellwood-Antis swimming team during the winter.  She also enjoys working out and lifting.

Bellwood hopes to have a successful year of softball and Saige has some lofty goals.

“For my personal goal I would like to get my 100th hit.  For our team I want to win the ICC because ever since I’ve been here we never have,” she said.
