Elisa Cecchetti played her high-school softball career in her home country of Italy. Despite playing abroad, Cecchetti received interest from multiple college teams in the United States.
After careful deliberation, she decided to further her athletic and academic career at Tallahassee Community College.
“I had to pick between a couple schools and I was told TCC had a good program for education and then they talked really [well] about Coach Patti,” Cecchetti said on choosing TCC.
Cecchetti got off to a successful start at the college level. She finished second on the team in hits (39) and batting average (.322) as a freshman. The Eagles finished just 21-23 on the season, but Cecchetti had an uptick in confidence because of her success. She carried her momentum into the offseason and continued to put in the time to become a better all-around player.
