Dream A Little Dream

Oberlin is a place where dreams come true, for students and staff. Kelsey Knapp, who for three years was our full-time assistant, pitching coach, and friend, has achieved her dream by joining the softball staff at the University of Rhode Island.  (Read the press release here.)  As part of Kelsey's first official duties at her new job last week, she aced (okay, nearly aced) an NCAA DI recruiting rules test on just her second day of work.  She will give those rules a test-run this weekend at her first major recruiting tournament.

Whether it was being named to the 2008 Oberlin College homecoming court (along with Constantine Ananiadis, our women's tennis coach), working out to her grueling P90X schedule, or coaching at practice, Kelsey was a real dynamo.  The newest member of the University of Rhode Island staff is also the best one.  Congratulations, Kelsey!  Keep being amazing!

Gone are the candy jar, the rubber duck,
and clutter that reminded everyone that
each day is a good day when Kelsey's around.
