 Shortstop Jackie Lance began playing softball with her mother at the age of 8. She graduated from the University of New Mexico in criminology and psychology. She is currently employed at Home Depot through the Olympic Employment Opportunity program. A strong hitter, Lance credits softball with helping her achieve balance and direction. As a youth she dropped out of school at age 15 when a lifestyle of drug-use almost destroyed her future. She left home for two years but was able to successfully escape the dark hole. A 1998 world championship team member, and MVP at the 1992 Nationals, she says that the silver medal win at the 1999 Pan Ams is her career highlight to date.
