North Allegheny senior Kendall Trunzo recently signed her letter of intent to continue her softball and academic career at John Carroll University.
Due to the COVID 19 pandemic, Trunzo didn’t have an opportunity to play in 2020. During her sophomore season in 2019, Trunzo made her varsity debut at North Allegheny and played in 17 games for the Tigers. She finished fourth on the team with 14 runs scored, to go along with a .214 batting average, three RBI and five walks.
“I’m really excited for the upcoming season and being able to take on the senior leadership role,” said Trunzo at her signing. “I’d like to thank my parents, travel team coaches, Mike Harris and Sam Hartzber, and the whole NA softball organization. I’m excited to continue my softball career at John Carroll.”
At JCU, Trunzo will double major in Criminology and Accounting. She is pictured above with her parents Molly and Jim Trunzo, North Allegheny head coach Morgan Vescovi, assistant coaches Warren Pirring and Rick Meister, and JV head coach Bill Mislan.
North Allegheny senior outfielder Lauren Haywood signed her letter of intent on Thursday to continue her academic and athletic career at Williams College in Massachusetts.
As a freshman in 2018, Haywood burst onto the scene at North Allegheny with a .423 batting average. With two seasons under her belt, Haywood is a career .298 hitter with 12 runs scored and eight RBI. She did not play her junior season due to the COVID-19 lockdown last spring.
Haywood will join an elite Williams College softball program that most recently went 39-7 in 2019 and reached the NCAA Division III College World Series for the fourth time in program history.
At Williams College, Haywood will major in Psychology. She is pictured above with her parents Bob and Rebecca Haywood, Team PA coach Denny Little, North Allegheny assistant coach Rick Meister and North Allegheny head coach Morgan Vescovi.
