On the Beat With Sahvanna Jaquish of the Chicago Bandits 2017

As the National Pro Fastpitch season winds down, the Bandits are in the thick of the race for the playoffs.  Currently, the Bandits are in 3rd place, with the Akron Racers and the Texas Charge trying to catch them.
There are still 5 games to play, plus the playoffs.  We still have several interviews to run, as well.  Today's interview features catcher Sahvanna Jaquish.
Sahvanna starred at Louisiana State University, being named an NFCA All-American in all 4 seasons.  She drove in more than 50 runs every season, which landed her in 1st place in LSU history.  As a junior, she started 69 of 70 games, including 30 starts at catcher, 17 at 1st, 16 at 3rd and 6 as DP.  Her durability was matched by her versatility.  As a senior, she drove in 53 runs and had an incredible .548 on base percentage.  Her career culminated in being selected 3rd overall by the Bandits in the 2017 draft.
In her rookie season, as of this writing, she is hitting .330 with 3 homers, 27 rbi's and 12 runs scored.  Additionally, she has thrown out 35% of attempted base-stealers.
In our interview, Sahvanna talked about her versatility, her love of crawfish.  Because she was a broadcast journalism major at LSU, we turned the tables and asked Sahvanna what questions she would ask herself and then we asked her those questions.  Sahvanna was a great sport, going along with that bit.
As always, we thank the Bandits for their hospitality.  We also thank Sahvanna for her time and consideration.
We encourage everyone to support the Bandits as they enter this final week of the regular season.  Head to ChicagoBandits.com for more news, info and scheduling.
