Kailyn Campbell, a senior at Cedarcrest High School, recently signed a letter of intent to play fastpitch softball for the Central Washington University Wildcats, under head coach Mallory Holtman. Campbell also received a scholarship to attend the school.
Athletics have been a constant in Campbell's life, beginning with T-ball at a young age. She started playing select softball at age 9, and played volleyball and basketball for Cedarcrest, softball is where she has found her personal success. The first-basewoman's defensive skills have been described as fluid and natural, with her power hitting abilities and offensive prowess ready to move to the Great Northwest Athletic Conference.
Central Washington University’s women’s fastpitch softball team has a 91-48 record in conference play over the last four seasons. Although the program had a down year in 2012, Campbell is one of many new additions to the team expected to boost the program back to familiar heights in 2013.
Equally impressed with the campus as she is with her new head coach, Campbell is excited to make the journey to the highly respected Ellensburg school.
