PLYMOUTH â€” Itâ€™s taken a lot of time and hard work for Marissa Sullivan to reach the next level.
The four-year Plymouth pitcher made it official last Thursday when she signed with Ancilla College to play softball beginning in 2012-13.
â€śI liked the environment, the people were really nice, and I wanted to play softball somewhere,â€ť said Sullivan of her choice.
â€śIâ€™m really excited. Iâ€™ve worked forever to get to this point, and Iâ€™m glad I made it here finally.â€ť
PLYMOUTH â€”Â The Plymouth softball team came up short in its second game of the young season, dropping a 4-0 decision to LaPorte on Saturday.
