Providence Seniors Set Sights on College Careers

By Burbank Leader Staff

Seniors on the Providence High softball team have capped their high school careers as champions. And for five Pioneers, they will set their sights on collegiate competition.

Olyvia Rutter, Grace Workman, Breanna Pelaez, Belen Benito and Malia Rode plan to play softball in college level after propelling the Pioneers to back-to-back Prep League softball titles. 

Rutter will attend New York University, Pelaez is set for Bridgeport University, Rode will play at Sarah Lawrence College, Workman will compete for Westcliff University and Benito will continue her athletic career at American International College.

For the second year in a row, Providence finished the Prep League campaign as unbeaten champions. The Pioneers were one of the top-ranked CIF Southern Section Division V teams and reached the quarterfinal round before falling to eventual champion Valley Christian.

“It was a year for the books,” coach Manuel Travieso told the Leader.

Belen Benito will continue to play softball at American International College.
Breanna Pelaez will attend University of Bridgeport.
Grace Workman plans to play softball at Westcliff University.
Malia Rode is set to be part of the Sarah Lawrence College softball team.
Olyvia Rutter will continue her athletic career at New York University.
