It’s that time of year again, the snow is melting and the softball fields are cleared. Wasilla High School’s softball team is out and ready to swing into the season. Girls with zero to varsity

Experience playing can try out the sport.

One of the coaches of the Wasilla High softball team, Tyler Gilligan, is looking forward to the season. They wanted 24 girls to try out and 24 is what they got. The biggest goal Gilligan has for the team is to win another conference title, which would be the third one in a row.

The first game of the season is on April 13th against Kodiak. Rivalry games against Colony are the ones he is looking forward to most this season.

“We’re going to play, have fun, and we’re going to win,” Gilligan said.

Samantha Kincheloe, a sophomore at Wasilla High, plays for the softball team. She started playing her freshman year with no experience of the sport. She believes the team will do good this season and has more confidence playing since she had played the year before. Kincheloe’s position on the team is outfield and a goal of hers is to get home-runs this season.

“We are all like family and I love the coaches,” Kincheloe said.

Courtney Ham is another member of the Wasilla High softball team. This is her second year playing for WHS but has four years of experience total playing. Ham’s positions on the team are the pitcher, first, and second. Having all the past years of experience, she feels much more confident playing the game. She also plays for a comp team where the coaches are more strict and serious about the game, and the girls have more experience playing.

“My personal goal is to make a home-run, like, over the fence,” Ham said.
