Why did you choose this school? “I chose La Salle University because of its reputable Nursing program and the academic support that they offer their nurses and medical students that want to play on a Division 1 level.”

Reflections on high school career: “High School was a place for me to grow socially, overcome challenges and prepare for the next part of my journey. I consider it a small glimpse of what is to come.”

Other comments (people to thank):“I want to thank my family, friends, coaches, teammates, and everyone else who has supported me along the way and helped me reach my goal.”

Tony Marsalo (club coach): "Aubrey is the most fierce competitor I have ever coached. Aubrey was one of the first PA Strikers players ever to be offered a Division 1 scholarship and could be considered the most important player to have ever put on a Striker uniform. Without Aubrey's pitching ability we never would have broken onto the National softball scene. I will say this, the PA Strikers Softball program was built around Aubrey Seal. She alone opened many opportunities for young women coming up through our program"
