Another is Dumont, NJ and former Ramapo college softball standout Lisa Rizzo (left).
Interestingly, according to a Ramapo Record feature on her as a graduating star catcher, states:
As for the future, Rizzo has some plans.I don't know what's more shocking - the career path she actually chose to persue or the fact that a college softball catcher is, in fact, a lesbian.
“I’d like to be guidance counselor for emotionally disturbed children. As long as I can help kids, I’ll be content. I’d also love to get into coaching,” said Rizzo.
She was actually a damn good player. Some highlights from the Record article:
- During her freshman year, she was named to the National Collegiate Athletic Association East Region All-Tournament Team. She had a .348 batting average, with eight home runs, 10 doubles, one triple and 26 RBIs.
- The next year, she had a .367 batting average, with 23 hits, two doubles, three home runs and 14 RBIs. She was named to the NCAA East Region All-Tournament Team and the NJAC 1st Team All-Conference.
- Last season, she had 41 hits on 119 at bats, with a .345 batting average. She had eight doubles and 27 RBIs. Rizzo was also named to the NJAC 2nd Team All-Conference.
