Longstreth Sporting Goods hired Ali Lowe as softball manager.

“Ali brings a tremendous passion for fastpitch softball, and is excited to provide the best products and world class customer service to young female athletes,” says John Schaefer of Longstreth. “She has played at every level, from youth leagues to travel tournaments all over the country to collegiate competitions. I am confident her experiences, knowledge and also excitement will greatly benefit our softball customers.”

Ali is a 2014 graduate of Villanova University, where she earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communication. She was a four year starter at shortstop on the softball team at Villanova, and was captain her senior year. Ali was recognized on various all-academic teams during her college career, and grew up playing youth recreational and travel softball in Florida.

“I’m beyond excited to join the Longstreth team! This company is very unique in its mission to specifically support the female athlete and that is the most compelling aspect of this opportunity. Not many sporting goods companies tailor directly to women’s sports, especially softball, and that is what makes Longstreth so great. I never would have imagined landing my dream job so quickly, but I did and I couldn’t be happier!” said Lowe.
