Alex Szajna has signed a letter of intent to play softball for Cornerstone University beginning in the fall of 2012. Alex is the daughter of Dan and Paulette Szajna, residing in Washington Township and attends Romeo High School.She has two sisters, Erica and Danielle.
Alex has been a 4 year varsity player, where she has started as a shortstop (freshman), catcher (sophomore) and 2nd baseman in her junior year where her team clinched the league and district title. Named All League and All County, and this year's team captain, playing shortstop and batting 4th in the lineup, "she will be relied on heavily to direct the team defensively as she is one of the best players at 5 different positions" says High School Coach, Dave McIntyre. Alex has also been a 3 year starting varsity basketball player.
Making the All Academic Team each year, and a member of the National Honor Society, Alex carries a 3.8 GPA and plans to major in Biology with post graduate plans of podiatry.
When asked why she chose Cornerstone, she said, "When I was looking at different schools, I knew I wanted to go somewhere where I felt at home. The first time I saw the campus, I immediately fell in love. I was given a warm welcome from the administrative staff, students, team and Coaches. Having the opportunity to continue my athletic and academic career here at Cornerstone alongside the Christian environment is what I have wanted since the beginning."
