Women’s softball in need of additional players

The SPSCC women’s softball team is looking for new players for the upcoming 2014 spring season. In order to be a member of the team, you must be taking 12 credits in both the winter and spring quarter, and have a minimum GPA of 2.0.

“My favorite part of being on the team is the chemistry and bond that I have created with my teammates. They have become my best friends and I truly enjoy taking the field with them,” said sophomore catcher Jordanne Krumpols.

Last year’s team lost two sophomores and has seven players returning to take the field come spring. In the offseason, fastpitch head coach Shannon Stine recruited Liz Smith from Black Hills high school and Jamie Bingham from Anchorage, Alaska.

“You make acquaintances that you wouldn’t necessarily make outside of athletics. The atmosphere creates leadership, bonding, and coping skills. Athletes learn to pick each other up and take care of each other. People of various diversity and backgrounds come together with a common goal. Many long-lasting friendships have been created through sports. If you ask athletes about their friendships, I guarantee many of them were introduced through sports,” said Stine.

If you are interested in playing on the fastpitch team, contact Shannon Stine at 360-596-5460 or by email at sstine@spscc.edu.
