Dawson County High School senior Sydney McGinnis knew she wanted to continue playing softball and when she visited the campus of Alderson Broaddus University in West Virginia, she knew that's where she wanted to do it. "We just took a trip up there and I ended up really, really loving the campus and thinking the coach was a pretty great person so it just seemed right after I went there," McGinnis said about her first visit to the Division 2 School. The university initially reached out to the McGinnis family and Sydney did not know that she would even want to look at it, but her mom Wendy wanted to visit.
