Malena Angelini
is Drafted by
CSUS Girls Softball


Saturday, November 4, 2017, was a very special and celebratory day for 6th grade student, Malena Angelini! In conjunction with Team Impact, Malena was drafted by CSU Sacramento’s Girls Softball Team!  Malena signed her official draft papers, cheered on by her family, friends, Dr. Eister, and Ms. Sunahara. Malena is now an official member of the Girl’s Team! She will attend practices, games, dinners, events and more.

Team IMPACT is a national nonprofit that connects children facing chronic illnesses with college athletic teams, forming life-long bonds. Malena joins the athletic team and the student-athletes join the her support team—from Draft Day to Graduation. Throughout the journey, Malena will gain strength, camaraderie and support while the student-athletes experience lessons of courage, resiliency and perspective they can’t learn in a classroom. A win-win!  Congratulations, Malena!
