GOSHEN, Ind.–Today softball player for Bethel College Natalie Newell was interviewed by the students of Write on Sports summer camp at Goshen College. The students were told how Newell balances her softball with her schoolwork.
Newell has done an excellent job of showing that her sports do not interfere with her schoolwork. Newell works hard to make sure assignments are done and ready to be turned in by the due date, even if it means working on the assignment during the bus trip to an away game.
Newell has received awards not only for her softball but also for her academics. One of the awards she has that she is most proud of is her Academic All-American award which combines school and athletics.
Newell is remembered by many for her softball, but has said that she would rather be remembered f0r being a great scholar and role model. She understands that sports are important to her but she needs to have good grades in order to be able to do what she loves.
