Lady Bears Provide Instruction at Softball
March 27, 2014 – Last month, the
Lady Bears softball team took to the field -- not for a game, but for the
second annual Softball Clinic sponsored by the City of Raleigh Parks and
30 young ladies from the ages of eight to 14 gathered at the Walnut Creek
Softball Complex at 8:00 a.m. for instruction and fun before the Lady Bears
geared up for the CIAA Softball Roundup being held later in the day.
The 30 young
athletes included members of the Havoc youth travel team, a prominent team in
event is crucial for us because it is important that we connect with the local
community," said Shaw head softball coach Kimberly Miller. "It's also
important to give the young women at the clinic positive role models who
emphasize the importance of academics, as well as playing the game the right
clinic, which was originally scheduled as part of the Second Annual Shaw
University Softball Challenge, was moved to Saturday because of inclement
weather on the original date.
