"I have played Varsity and started all three years, my freshman year I played in the field position, the last two years I have loved playing short stop and I bat first in the line up." 

"Our record may me 6-5 but we are a very good team, when we are on, we are on," Debiasse shared.

"I love my coaches and my team is great, we all get along very well. I think we have all really come together and it will pay off the rest of the season."

The well rounded 'Dodger' also played volleyball over the winter and is thinking about going out for soccer this fall. "I'm just thinking about it now, because I like to stay active."

Debiasse will play on 'NJ Intensity' over the summer where she will play all over the country in tournaments, as well she is going to play in Italy visiting 6 cities.

"I hope to eventually play in college.  But right now everything I am doing is just really cool and I am very excited about finishing a great season."
