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.
