All-time hit leader finds new ways to lead Illini softballMay 1, 2012 - National Pro Fastpitch (NPF) Chicago Bandits
She was suddenly faced with the uncertainty of life after softball.
Three months after graduating, Zymkowitz found herself atop the professional softball world as a Cowles Cup winner and National Pro Fastpitch champion with the Chicago Bandits.
"It was just fun," Zymkowitz said of her experience last summer. "It is definitely a different game, a lot faster game and your skill level had to be pretty good because you're playing with all Olympic athletes."
One year after her senior season, Zymkowitz is now back with the Illini, but with a different perspective - as a student assistant coach while completing her undergraduate work at Illinois.
