ICC winter clinic a success
The first-ever Itawamba Community College winter softball clinic featuring current and former Lady Indians was a “great success,” according to ICC head softball coach Andy Kirk.
Sixty-one high school and junior high players participated from all across the state of Mississippi and parts of Alabama.
“I felt like the clinic was a great success and I’m looking forward to making it bigger and better in the future,” Kirk said. “We ended up expanding the amount of campers that we originally planned on hosting because we had such a large amount of applicants and really could have probably made this a two-day clinic.
32 girls participated in the morning pitching and catching session while twenty-nine took part in the afternoon hitting session.
“We had planned for the clinics to be split in two-hour sessions, but we ended up going closer to three hours because the girls were having so much fun and really wanted to learn how to improve their game for their upcoming seasons,” said Kirk.
Two-time MACJC All-State selections Kami Roberts of Smithville and Anna Holley of Columbus were two of the former Lady Indians volunteering with Saturday’s clinic.
“We are really fortunate to have a lot of players over the years that are still excited to be a part of helping our program be a success,” said Kirk. “I feel like the feeling of being a family and pride in the program after you graduate are two of the top things that makes ICC such a special.”
The two-time defending MACJC North champions will open the 2014 season Feb. 10 when they host a doubleheader against Hinds Community College.
