After pitching her second complete-game shutout of the season against Seton Hall, Cheyenne Eggens was exiting the USF softball facility and her heart skipped a beat.
Waiting for her was Lance Corporal Timothy Moran — her boyfriend of three years.
Eggens jumped into an embrace with the marine and was met with cheers from all of her teammates.
Moran and Eggens have had only seen each other once the past ten months.
“It made me feel very good, I was very excited to see him,” Eggens said. “I hadn’t seen him in a while and I don’t know when I’ll see him again so I’ll cherish that moment forever.”
Moran is stationed in Hawaii and surprised Eggens by arriving a week early, unbeknownst to the Bulls’ ace.
Eggens posted a video of their reunion on Monday saying: “So blessed with this amazing surprise.”
After seeing Moran, Eggens has pitched in five games and has given up only nine hits.
They say absence makes the heart grow fonder and presence strengthens it. Eggens has carried her momentum off the field onto the mound with her.
