Wellington’s Gabby Mack Finds A Collegiate Home On The Softball Diamond

Wellington’s Gabby Mack signs her letter of intent to play softball at the University of Tampa.

Wellington High School senior softball player Gabby Mack will be playing college softball starting in the spring of 2023. On Wednesday, Nov. 10, Mack signed a national letter of intent with the University of Tampa Spartans.

The Spartans compete in the Sunshine State Conference, which is an NCAA Division II collegiate conference. In addition to playing softball, she will be pursuing a degree in kinesiology.

Mack is thrilled that her competitive softball-playing days will continue beyond her high school graduation.

“I am extremely excited to be playing softball for the University of Tampa with the goals of helping my team win the conference championships and, hopefully, compete for the national championships as well,” Mack said. “I am also looking forward to continuing my education with a major in kinesiology.”

In addition to the offer from the University of Tampa, she was considering offers from two colleges in Palm Beach County, Florida Atlantic University and Lynn University.

Mack, an honor roll student at WHS, is also a golfer on the girls golf team. The Wellington girls golf team concluded its season this fall with a fourth-place finish in the local Florida High School Athletic Association district golf tournament in late October.

This coming spring, Mack will be playing her fourth and final high school softball season for the Wolverines. Because of her height, Mack is expected to play first base for the University of Tampa.
