The outfielder is a senior at Bishop Montgomery High School (where she hit for a .388 average last season) and also plays for the Mizuno Pride.
I must include the following quote from Kimi:
Bishop Montgomery held a signing ceremony for two of its top girl athletes who made their college choices.
Softball player Kimi Kurata signed with Fairfield. Volleyball player Rachel Clark signed with the University of Virginia.
They said signing the various papers to make their college decisions official was a bit nerve-wracking.
"It was scary," Kurata said. "Rachel and I were both talking, and we were nervous. It was like we were signing our life away.
"But we're both confident that we're making the right decisions."
Don't worry Kimi, Connecticut is beautiful in the spring!
