Central Catholic’s Izzy Vetter just wrapped up her senior year as a star pitcher for the Saints, and now she will head to college to play softball at Evansville. It’s been a lot of hard work and determination to get to the college level.
“It’s a dream come true,” Vetter said. “I’ve worked so hard to get to the division one level and now that I am here, I’m excited to keep working hard.”
Coming into her freshman season at Evansville, Vetter is going to have a chance to be the number two starting pitcher for the Aces. Right behind number one pitcher Morgan Florey, who is also a central Illinois product.
“I’m expecting to pitch a lot, that’s kind of why I picked Evansville because I knew I would play as a freshman,” Vetter said. “Because their pitching is, they have Morgan Florey who is really good and a stud, but she needs some help. And I’m excited to play with her. I think it’s going to be really cool to play with her.”
And since Evansville is in the Missouri Valley Conference, Vetter is happy to know that she will be in central Illinois at least twice a year: to play at Illinois State and Bradley.
“I love that I get to play so close to home, my family can come and watch me,” Vetter said. “I think it is so cool, I’ve heard about the Missouri Valley my whole life and now I actually get to play in it.”
