Thank you, Good-bye and Good Luck Angela Zedak

Outfielder Angela Zedak recently played her last regular season game for the Northwestern Wildcats softball team. It's been an amazing career and I got to see it firsthand.

Angela played 221 games in her five seasons, batting .272 with 36 HRs and 131 RBIs. She hit .314 over the last two seasons. On defense, she had an excellent .981 fielding percentage. Additionally, she played with a lot of spirit, passion an personality. She also had time for the fans, even old guys like me.

It really has been a pleasure watching Angela develop over the five seasons. While she came to NU as a talented player, she worked hard to keep improving her skills and it showed in her stats. A graph of her stats would show a steady incline during her time at NU.

She also was one of the most personable payers. I always saw a smile on her face. She loved playing and loved the game. That type of attitude makes it even more fun for fans.

A Chicago native and product of Marist High School, it seems likely Angela will stay around the area. Maybe I will see her at future games. Either way, I wish Angela good luck wherever her future takes her and I thank her for great memories at the J.
