svsu coaches players

picWe have named a head coach for the 16U team this season. Her name is Kailah Happ and she is a former All Conference Shortstop from SVSU. We’re very excited to have her working with the girls this season. Her experience and leadership will be outstanding in the growth of our players. Kailah started for 4 season at SVSU graduating in 2013. She is a certified athletic trainer and is studying for her masters in Occupational Therapy. She was part of the SVSU team in 2011 that finished in the top 4 in the nation . She was also a graduate assistant for SVSU Softball in 2014. Kailah will be assisted by another former SVSU Cardinal, Katie Smith.

Sarah AppoldSarah Appold from SVSU has worked with 17 of our girls this week doing private lessons and has been with us for the last month. The results have been amazing. 

We also have Former All State and Western Michigan Ace “Denise Tasiemski Toogood” coming in for a one day clinic later this month. Exciting news!!
