Crescenta Valley High School senior Sydnee Wells last week signed her national letter of intent with George Mason University in softball. GMU is a Division 1 program. Wells was first seen by a GMU coach last year when she played in the Diamond 9 Showcase in Florida.
Wells has been playing travel softball since she was 12. She is currently the only student at CV who has accepted a scholarship at a university to play sports.
Wells is a varsity starter on the CV softball team who is a catcher and also plays middle infield. Wells is a power hitter, recently demonstrating her ability by hitting three homeruns in four games.
Wells has prepared for this opportunity by taking individual lessons from Al Quintana in Pasadena for hitting and catching. She has also been taking speed, agility and strength training from Ted Armstrong in Pasadena.
Wells has been dedicated in academics as well. She currently has a 3.8 weighted GPA. She wants to major in sports management and work for a major league baseball team one day.
