“I’m looking forward to joining an awesome (academic) program while continuing to play softball at the next level,” said the final year student at LCCVI in Petrolia. “Having played softball in the area while I was growing up, it’s an exciting opportunity to stay close to home. Having family and friends be able to watch me play is going to be a cool experience. It’s going to be a lot of fun.”

Kylee’s father Greg is excited to have his daughter joins the squad for its second season on the collegiate landscape.

“I’m just looking forward to seeing her continue to grow as she balances playing a varsity sport with going to college, but I know she’s more than capable of doing just that.”
