This blog celebrates the Wesley College fastpitch team, its players and the wonderful game of collegiate softball. It presents strictly positive, bolstering reports about the Wolverine squad as well as
"can-do" motivational softball news and information from around the web.
“She is a multi-year all-conference selection who has a powerful bat and can command at the plate,” notes Wolverine Head Coach Juli Greep.
Her fastpitch resume also includes recognition as a Mid-Atlantic Region Championship Catcher, twelve-time travel-ball tournament MVP, and three-time Little League State Championship Catcher. Her club teammates are the South Jersey Gators Gold.
“She is a knowledgeable catcher and possess the skills needed to be an extremely valuable member of our squad,” adds Coach Greep.
Besides catching, Gabby is comfortable at the diamond’s corners, easily handing either the hot third base or the extended stretch from the first base bag. In high school, she has been no stranger to the basketball and volleyball courts, too.
Twice Gabby has been recognized with the Umpires Pin for outstanding leadership, which she has proved doubly deserving especially off the field. She’s been active in the Support Our Troops Club, has been a Challenger Sports Volunteer and Ambassadors Club member.
She also has earned several prestigious academic accolades, most notably a National Honor Society distinction.

Incoming Freshman Wolverine Recruit Katie Dunlap has infield blanketed, playing P, 1B, 2B, 3B!
There are utility players and then there’s Katie Dunlap, an incoming fastpitch freshman Wesley Wolverine for the 2018-19 collegiate season.
“Katie is a three time Henlopen All-Conference player, and a 2018 Delaware first-team All-State Honoree,” boasts Wesley Head Coach Juli Greep.
Her utility assignments include the starting pitcher’s role, while, when not hurling Ks, she’s capable of easily covering every bag around the pitcher’s circle: e.g., holding down either the 1st, 2nd, or 3rd base positions, as well.
“Katie will allow us to have significant depth at a number of positions making our team much more dynamic,” adds Coach Greep.
