Mary Gelber is one of the better high school softball shortstops in Illinois, and she’s interested in Williams.

Gelber has attended exposure camps at North Carolina and Stanford on her own and is still aiming high after performing well at every out-of-state event.

“I always e-mail coaches of places I’m interested in to let them know when I’m playing,” said Gelber, who includes Iowa and Northwestern among the schools she’s interested in along with Division III Williams College (Williamstown, Mass). “I’m always sending them little tidbits about me. I think I’ve kinda figured out pretty well where I can fit in.

“The important thing is now these coaches know who I am. It’s really hard to get exposure to out-of-state schools unless you travel there. The coaches are always telling you there’s a college out there for everyone, so it was good to learn that.”
