How did you get your start in softball and how did you get to the upper level?
I started playing softball on a co-ed team as a fill in when I was 17. The next year some friends put together a local E team. From then on I was hooked on softball. A few years later after playing E/D level ball I got picked up by a local C team that traveled a little bit. Then for the next 5-6 years I played with Vancouver USA at the C/B level. Then in 2009 I was playing in Seattle against NW Combat with another local team. Thanks to Derek Warren talking me up, after the game Coop said they were making some changes to NW and asked if I would be interested in finishing the year with them. I made the move to NW and it worked out great! From there I moved to Combat/Laser Vision the following year.
