Coral Springs Charter senior Bella Bertorelli has officially announced her commitment to play softball at Rollins College in Florida.

“One of my biggest dreams for so long was to play college softball and now that it’s finally come true, it a combination of feeling thrilled, a little bit relieved, and also anxious and excited to get started,” said Bertorelli.

Bertorelli, who lives in Pine Ridge, began softball at ten. She played for several years with the Coral Springs Panthers Travel Club, Youth Softball Academy of Coral Springs, Florida Power Black, and Columbian National Team.

For three years, Bertorelli has been on the varsity softball team, helping lead the Panthers to a record of 50-9. She is a lifetime hitter of .340 and scored 38 RBIs and 41 runs.

“She works hard and pours everything she has into the game of softball, said Head Coach Mark Montimurro. “This is a perfect example of hard work, grit, and determination being rewarded.”

Bertorelli not only fell in love with the campus, but she also got the chance to meet with the players and Coach Christine Roser-LeFevers. While she still has one year left on the varsity softball team, Bertorelli hopes she can become an everyday starter by the time she becomes a freshman. Bertorelli is also planning on spending significant time in the weight room and on the track to become a more aggressive base runner.

Rollins College is coming off a season where they made it to the third round of the NCAA South Region and went 32-12.
