Savannah Teuscher

Student Manager
Location: CC 104

Savannah Teuscher joins the team as a Student Manager. Injuries plagued her time as an SCC Cougar, but she was an excellent motivator around the team. Currently, Teuscher is pursuing a biology degree from University of Missouri-St. Louis. Being part of a team is what inspires Teuscher to stick with the SCC softball program.

Savannah’s favorite thing about softball is how it teaches you to work together, the feeling of being a part of a team and realizing in order to play well you have to come together and get along to make good plays happen. Favorite athlete is Yadier Molina.

People don’t know she has a yellow belt in karate. Her most memorable moment from softball is when her summer team won second place in a tournament with only nine girls. They played seven games with one pitcher. After she graduates from UMSL she plans on teaching high school biology.
