My name is Neely Peterson, and I recently graduated from Florida Gulf Coast University. I am a right-handed power hitting catcher. I finished the season First Team All-ASUN, ASUN Tournament MVP, selected to ASUN Tournament Team, unanimous selection for Preseason Catcher of the Year, broke the single season record at FGCU for most runners thrown out, batted .301 with 10 doubles, 4 HR, and 36 RBI.

I am reaching out to inquire about any available opportunities to play softball in New Zealand. Having developed a strong passion for the sport over the years, I am eager to continue playing at a competitive level while experiencing the unique culture and environment that New Zealand has to offer. I believe that my skills, dedication, and experience as a catcher would make a valuable addition to a team.
