During her time at Chesapeake, Hyson was named to The Washington Post All-Met team and The Baltimore Sun All-Met selection team. In her free time, Hyson serves as a youth pitching coach.
Patch caught up with the former Cougar, now a Hoya, to see how her life as a college softball player is going.
Pasadena Patch: Why did you decide to go to a more local school like Georgetown?
Megan Hyson: Well, Georgetown offers a great education and, when I came to visit, I just loved the campus. Also, they have a softball team and after meeting them it just felt like home. I enjoy being close to home and close to my family.
Pasadena Patch: How has your first year at Georgetown been going? And has it lived up to your expectations?
Hyson: It was pretty tough at first, but with all the help Georgetown gave it definitely helped me adjust. It is going very well now.
Pasadena Patch: How would you say playing softball at Chesapeake prepared you for softball at the college level?
Hyson: Probably just that fact that we had practice every day; that definitely helped me stay in shape. It also helped me get used to working as a team.
Pasadena Patch: What is your favorite memory from your years of playing softball at Chesapeake?
Hyson: There’s a lot actually, but my favorite is probably when we beat Northeast my senior year. The game went to extra innings and it was on senior night.
Pasadena Patch: What would you say the biggest difference between playing at Chesapeake and playing at Georgetown has been?
Hyson: It’s definitely the competition; especially playing teams from different states and traveling. That part of it is very different.
Pasadena Patch: What is your major? And how are classes going?
Hyson: I’m a nursing major. School is going pretty good. I am keeping up with the work and I am really enjoying all of the classes I am taking.
