Bloomfield College Alumna Aubrey Orr ’17 participated in Beyond Sports’ Second Annual South Africa Softball Tour. The former student athlete traveled to Cape Town, South Africa in June to take part in the event.

Orr joined a team of all-conference honorees and statistical leaders from colleges across the country to take on Cape Town’s best softball teams in three friendly games.

In addition to the competition component of the trip, Orr and the rest of the visiting athletes provided softball clinics for South African youth. Clinics and games were hosted in partnership with the Cape Town Softball Association.

The group also spent time learning about South African history and culture as they visited Robben Island, the prison where Nelson Mandela spent 18 of his 27 years of incarceration, the Castle of Good Hope, District 6 Museum, hiked Table Mountain, and enjoyed a Big Game Safari.

Beyond Sports, founded in 2010, is the first study abroad program designed specifically for student-athletes. To date, they have hosted athletes from over 350 different colleges across the country through summer, Jan-term and semester programs in Costa Rica, South Africa, Spain and Australia.
