Carly Dundee is one of the key components of the 2017 UW-Parkside softball team, and is considered one of the team leaders. Dundee is a senior who is currently in her fourth season as a Ranger, and her career has been a success.

A priceless leader

Last season, while appearing as a pitcher, and infielder Dundee had made her impact and her presence felt on a game to game basis. The Kinesiology major led the team in almost every major category on the offensive and defensive side of the field. She was a sure thing every game as well, as she started in 48 games and appeared in all 49 on the season. A performance like that was able to show her true worth on the team.

Once a leader, always a leader

Dundee came to the campus straight out of her high school, Lockport High, which is in Homer Glen, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago. She was a perennial all conference player in her time there, and much like she does as a Ranger, she lead her team in all major categories at the high school level.

On and off the field

While the team is only 6-16 at this point in the season, Dundee has kept up with her team leadership. Dundee has led the team on and off the field, and her teammates look to her when the going gets tough.

Dundee’s goals

Despite the disappointing start to her senior season, Dundee has always managed to stay optimistic for the long run: “This season started out a little rocky, but it’s very helpful for us and our coach to see what works and what needs improvement.”

Looking ahead, Dundee hopes to the bring the team some more success and get the team record back to .500 on the season. The playoffs will be nearing soon and the team has high hopes that they can turn it around. She solidified her optimism in saying, “I think our season looks very bright!”
