At 24-years of age Megan Lozinski is the old lady on the Windsor Lancers softball team. "This is my last year finally." said the LaSalle native. "I know I've said it before but year seven is when I tap out."
Varsity athletes max out their eligibility after five years but because there are no eligibility rules for club teams Lozinski has been able to extend her playing career while finishing school. "Right now I'm supply teaching and working for the athletic department at the university and doing my master of education while still playing softball." said Lozinski who is a few years older than many of her teammates. "It's getting harder on my body as I get older but it's always worth it. It's a lot of fun."
During her evolution as a student-athlete Lozinski has included coaching (LaSalle Athletics 2010 team) to her resume. "Pass things along that we've learned over the years. I really enjoy doing that."
Losinski has made it to the playoffs twice times in her career, once as a rookie and the other last year. She earned a save and a win as the Lancers swept the Waterloo Warriors during a doubleheader Saturday at Mic Mac Park 8-6 and 13-3. The victories give the Lancers a 13-5 record which is second in the West Division behind 18-0 Western. "Our goal this year has been to win or tie every inning and I think if we keep going with that goal then we can be very successful in playoffs and I really believe in this team and I think we can go far."
