With head coach Nikki Dequin by her side Wednesday morning, freshman Emily Castro, signed a national letter of intent to attend and play softball for the Argonaunts at Notre Dame De Namur University in Belmont, CA during the 2010-11 academic year.
After one season with the Rams, Castro is ready to move on to the next level. "We are very excited for Emily to sign with Notre Dame. Although we'd like to have her for one more year, she is ready to step into the next phase of her academic and athletic career and we support her decision. Gavilan College is a stepping stone for many student-athletes. Our goal is to prepare them for the next level. Emily has been a steady outfielder for us and will continue to help Notre Dame as well," stated Dequin.
Castro is unsure of what she will major in at Notre Dame beginning in the fall. It's likely that she won't have to decide by herself as younger sister and current Gilroy High School standout, Alyssa Castro, is likely to follow suit.
