Rachel is just a competitor! With her experience from last season I expect Rachel to lead our young Fillie team straight to the playoffs in 2014.”

Rachel was named on the All-Gwinnett County Fastpitch Softball Team Region 8-AAAAA in the pitching position both years.
Personal: Rachel was born on August 26, 1994 to Tim and Kim Hill. She has an older sister and two older brothers. She loves her big family and spending time with them. She has played softball since she was four years old and has continued to develop an ever-growing passion for the game.
Why ABAC? I made the decision to attend ABAC when I was overwhelmed by Coach Campbell’s kindness and confidence she had in my abilities as a pitcher. I have been on campus since August and I have fallen in love with the smaller campus and town of Tifton. Playing softball for the Fillies is the cherry on the cake to a great college to attend. I can’t wait to see what the season holds for me and the team. I hope to continue my athletic career at another wonderful college after ABAC!
