Charlise Castro’s Bio
Charlise Castro’s place of birth is Saugerties, New York, which makes her an American national. The former softball player was born as Charlise Kristine Castro on the 13th of May 1992. She was a sports standout during her days as a student, however, she still excelled in academics, despite the time she spent away from her studies trying to become an accomplished sportswoman. Besides, she gives credit to her parents who refused to allow her to settle for anything less than her possible best.
Castro went on to join Kingston High School where she emerged as the captain of the school’s softball team in 2010. According to the fitness trainer, she was a three-sport All-American athlete during her high school days, excelling in softball, volleyball, and basketball. Charlise Castro found it a bit cumbersome to juggle sports and academics, but she was handsomely rewarded when she became the recipient of a Division I scholarship. The young athlete added that the icing on the cake was the opportunity to play in the Olympics, and she also played for Puerto Rico’s National Team.
She attended the University of Maryland-Eastern Shore where she earned the title of Freshman of the Year, however, Castro did not complete her college education there. She later transferred to the University of Albany and before long; she earned another title of American East Conference Player of the Year, making her the 2nd player in the history of the conference to bag the league’s Triple Crown with a hit of 461, 13 homes as well as 53 RBIs. Her softball activities in all the three years she spent at Albany resulted in really good stats, and she earned another milestone with her graduation from the university with a major in Communications, though she was studying Psychology before she changed course.
It would appear that Charlise Castro was not satisfied with just a first degree as she proceeded to the University of Saint Rose, also located in Albany, where she earned a Masters degree in Business Administration. Although she had a very good chance to continue with her career as a professional softball player, her passion for fitness and health won the battle.
