Kristina Hull has big plans for the future that don’t include softball. Moving to Salamanca, Spain, Hull plans to work in a campus ministry for a year. After that, the Colorado Springs native wants to head to LSU for graduate school and eventually become a collegiate strength and conditioning coach.
Starting every game for the Yellow Jackets this year, Hull is a finalist for the 2007 Lowe’s Senior Class Softball Award. She is also the President of Georgia Tech’s Student-Athlete Advisory Committee.
How did you get started playing softball?
I started playing when I was five years old. It was really funny because my mom told me that when I was that age that I was going to not be good at softball and that my sister would be the good one. It kind of switched around. She’s two years older than me. It was the first sport I played; they kind of just put me in it. I still have my jersey somewhere.
What has been your greatest accomplishment so far as an athlete?
I think that being successful at this level is my greatest accomplishment. Over my four years, I’ve been pretty successful, at a top 20 school and being able to play. Its definitely hard work and I’ve been able to get through it and have loved every second of it.
