Whitney Ennis– Hey y’all! My name is Whitney Ennis and I attended Bloomington High School South and went on to play Division 1 softball at Tennessee State University. In my time at BHSS, I was a part of the 2014 State Championship team, making it the first in school history. I also hold two records at BHSS for most hits in a season and most doubles in a season. During my time at TSU, I was the starting catcher, named one of our team captains, broke a no hitter against the University of Tennessee, and was a hand in helping rebuild the program. After college, I decided my passion was too strong to let softball go, so I give private lessons in Nashville, TN under my brand Dreams in Action. My most memorable play was throwing out the fastest girl in the NCAA in 30 degree weather. My favorite part about softball are of course the friendships you make along the way, but the amount of growth and leadership I learned throughout my 17 years of playing.
