At Stanford University, she was 4-time First Team All-American and played professionally in National Pro Fastpitch, being named 2011 Player of the Year and finishing career as one the top-10 for batting average and slugging percentage.

Conroy started the Beverly Bandits, a nationally recognized elite fast pitch softball team that has won numerous national championships and has sent more than 400 young women to Division 1 college scholarships over the last 20 years.
