Video Profile of Carolyn Szymanski
Caravel Academy softball pitcher Carolyn Szymanski is this week's WDEL High School Athlete of the Week.

Carolyn tossed a perfect game and also hit two triples in a victory over St. Elizabeth last week.

Carolyn says her pitching success is based on her delivery.

"It's a little crazy. I have a crazy beginning. I guess it could be overwhelming for some when they don't see it at first."

With her success at both the plate and in the circle, you might think Carolyn puts a lot of time into her crafts, and you'd be right.

"A lot of practice goes into it during the previous weeks. I do two other practices for pitching."

Like many top athletes, Carolyn's softball career started early.

"I started in Little League and then I did travel ball. After that I just stuck with it, and I just like the game."

Caravel has won 8 state championships since 1999, including last year's title over Milford. Carolyn says she loves being with a successful team.

"I'm so happy to play with Caravel just because it's such a good organization and so much practice. We practice a lot so I think that shows."
