From The Field

Meet FCA “Family Member” Alicia Vining Alicia Vining, the daughter of FCA New Hampshire State Director Mike Vining, was recently named the on-field ball girl for the Washington Nationals. Being on the ball field is nothing foreign to Alicia who was a stand out softball player at Portsmouth Christian Academy, New Hampshire where she was named to the All-State team three times and New Hampshire pitcher of the year in 2015. Currently a junior at American University, Alicia is enjoying her School of Business studies, as well as serving in various leadership roles on campus. In addition to captaining club softball, she is a member of Chi Omega, American University Student Ambassador and President of American’s Sports Business Association. She also serves as a youth group leader at her church. Alicia will be spending the summer in Washington DC where by day she will serve as an intern for the Tiger Woods Foundation, and in the evenings will be the National’s ball girl. If you are in the DC area this summer, stop by a Nationals game and say hello to Alicia Vining. If you mention FCA, she may give you a baseball!
