Even though JWOWW is a taken woman, back in college, she definitely played the field … the softball field, that is!

There’s nothing we love more than a good throwback pic, and JWOWW recently Instagrammed a glorious one from her college softball days at New York Institute of Technology — and it looks like she’s about to hit a homerun! She included the hashtags #kickass and #amazingness, clearly proud to show off her athletic prowess with a look of fierce determination.

We know JWOWW is one tough cookie (if her spars on Jersey Shore are any indication). She memorably got into a fist fight with Sammi Sweetheart in Season 3 that included hair-pulling and resulted in some broken fake nails!

“We used to beat up girls like that in high school,” she declared after the fight, and that was far from her last scuffle on the show. Thankfully, the two patched things up and have been friends ever since … for the most part.

You may also remember the famous punch JWOWW gave The Situation on Season 1 when he dissed her best friend Snooki. We always knew our girl was a fighter, but it looks like she was one on the sports field, too!
