Matt Farrell, Finlandia softball head coach

“I’m extremely excited to welcome Liz to the Finlandia softball program. “She is an outstanding 2-way player that will be a force to be reckoned with in the middle of our lineup the next four years. Liz’s home-run power and ability to consistently drive in runs will help us transition into the extremely competitive Coast-2-Coast Athletic Conference. She is also a stalwart on the mound that will be a valuable member of our pitching rotation. Liz’s family ties to the Upper Peninsula and strong academic background makes her an ideal fit for our campus community.”
