On November 8th, Cailyn Barthlow officially signed the National Letter of Intent to play softball at Hood College in Maryland.

During her four years at Linganore, she has played varsity volleyball, basketball, and softball. In addition to playing on multiple high school teams, she is also a member of the Heartbreakers travel softball team.

A three-year varsity softball starter, she has hit nine home runs. Barthlow has been playing softball for ten years, and she loves to play shortstop and turn double plays.

Barthlow’s softball coach, Andrea Poffinberger said, “Cailyn is a ‘one of a kind’ athlete. She is a fighter, which we all got to witness during her comeback from a severe leg injury this past summer.”

This past July during a softball tournament in Florida, an opponent slid into Barthlow’s leg and broke her tibia and fibula. Barthlow has made a speedy recovery, healing enough to play high school basketball and softball this year.

Barthlow has always been interested in science and the field of orthopedic surgery, but she said that breaking her leg definitely made it clear that that was what she wanted to do.  

For Barthlow, Hood College was an obvious choice.

“I wanted to be close to home and go to a small school. Also, the softball coach at Hood is my club coach so we are already really close,” said Barthlow.

“It has been an absolute pleasure to coach her in two sports. I wish her luck at Hood,” said Poffinberger.
