    Northwestern Celebrates Fall Season With "Choose It" Video



    Dec. 13, 2012

    EVANSTON, Ill. -- Northwestern softball has released a video celebrating the incredible work the Wildcats already have put in to prepare for the 2013 season.

    Created by Andrew Linnehan, husband of two-time NU softball All-American and Big Ten Pitcher of the Year Eileen Canney, the video serves as a reminder to the 'Cats of the investment they made in the fall, and challenges them to continue to "Choose It" over winter break.

    "This video highlights the great work our team has done this fall in preparation for our first pitch on February 8," head coach Kate Drohan said. "We still have a lot of important work ahead of us, yet right now I want to applaud our team's focus in choosing NU softball each and every day."

    In addition to the early morning workouts and competitions, the Wildcats also found time to perform nearly 200 hours of community service during the fall. Among NU's many outreach activities last quarter, the 'Cats made multiple visits to area elementary schools, helped distribute 80,000 pounds of chicken to local food pantries and participated in the NU swimming and diving "Breaststroke4BreastCancer," helping to raise thousands and thousands of dollars for local cancer research.



    Enjoy the video below; during this Holiday Season the Wildcats invite you to join them and "Choose It" every day!
