She will be attending Scared Heart College in Connecticut next fall on a softball scholarship. Petrovich also excelled in the classroom earning distinguished honor in all marking periods at Hanover Park. Besides playing softball Amy likes to watch "Friends" on Netflix, football and the N Y Yankees. Her sister is her role model and being a Public Relations Specialist would be the perfect dream job.
