Alex Viscusi was not necessarily pressured into making The Big Decision, but she knew she couldn’t take her good old time.
Princeton or Penn. Which one would it be?
For Viscusi, the phenomenal Episcopal Academy junior pitcher, choosing between those two Ivy League programs was a good problem to have.
“Leading up to the decision, I had narrowed it down to Princeton and Penn. Both coaches were interested and I was interested in both schools,” she said. “So when it came down to the time of the decision, the deadline was put on by the Penn coach and I had to make a decision by the end of February. Leading up to that time I wrestled with the decision, going back and forth between the two schools. I had visited campus, visited classes, talked to coaches and players, etc.”
Viscusi decided on Princeton.
“When it came time to make the decision, I felt more comfortable — I felt like I fit better — at Princeton,” she said. ” I couldn’t celebrate it particularly, because then I had to turn down the Penn coach a few days later. So, that was a tough one. But I’m happy with the decision I made — I absolutely love it there at Princeton. ‘The coach is young, she’s excited to be there. She’s doing a lot of great things and I think the program will only get better.”
Viscusi has led EA to a 10-1 record and a undefeated mark in the Inter-Ac League. The Churchwomen are alone in first place after defeating Agnes Irwin for the second time this season Wednesday. Viscusi is one of the best pitchers and hitters in the county. She’s allowed just three runs against Inter-Ac opponents.
