Marietta's Storey spending summer as Stomper
Sophomore talks about her experience as an intern with the Lake Erie Crushers

July 8, 2009
MARIETTA, Ohio — Rising sophomore Meredith Storey (Olmsted Falls) is applying her love for sports and marketing to an internship this summer with the Lake Erie Crushers, a Frontier League baseball team. Storey, a Marketing major and right side hitter for Marietta's volleyball team, is working with promotions for the team while serving as one of the main attractions: Stomper, the mascot. SID Dan May recently sat down with her to get some insight into her experience.

How did you find out about your internship?
I first saw a team announcement in a local paper, the Lorain Morning Journal, publicizing the Inaugural Season of a new team in town, but didn’t think too much of it. Later, I went on the website and saw that WEOL AM-930 was a sponsor and it sparked my interest. I had done a few promotions with the announcers at WEOL when I had been my high school mascot and thought this might offer the perfect fit. I sent in an application to be a summer intern with my resume and some pictures of me as the Olmsted Falls Bulldog.
