BINGHAMTON, N.Y. —  Olympic Gold medalist and former University of Arizona and Team USA softball pitcher, Jennie Finch, spoke Monday afternoon, February 3, at Binghamton University’s Celebrating Women’s Athletics Luncheon, an annual affair held at the Events Center to recognize the achievements of the school’s female student-athletes.

“My message is to be the best you. Life’s short. Make the most of the opportunities that you have,” Finch told the media. “It’s amazing to see how far we have come as women, in sports especially. Just seeing the changes that it has allowed me to make and just knowing the impact athletics plays, especially in our young women’s lives, is so important.”

Since the first annual CWA Luncheon, the event has raised nearly $150,000 toward a scholarship fund, awarded to two female BU student-athletes each year.

For Finch speaking at events like the CWA Luncheon is an opportunity to give back.

“Now I’m a mother of three and speaking, doing camps and clinics and traveling around,” Finch said. “Being a mom is my ultimate favorite thing of all, but it’s always great to be around athletics because it’s who I am and has given me so much.”

Finch, who helped lead Team USA to the gold medal at the 2004 Summer Olympics and a silver medal at the 2008 Summer Olympics, is also a devout Christian who speaks openly about her faith in God.
