Learning from the Elites
Perkins County softball girls were in for a treat on the morning of June 1 when representatives with the Nebraska Elite Fastpitch Softball program came to Grant to give a morning workshop.
The program, based out of Lincoln, exists to teach softball skills to girls 10 to 14 years of age, and to provide high-level competition for those girls who are interested in going on to play in high school or college.
Grant softball coach Rachelle Fryzek was instrumental with bringing Coach Mike Roth and his daughters Lyndsey and Hanna to Grant. Roth is a family friend of the Fryzeks. He is also one of the directors of the Nebraska Elite and is the Assistant Girls Softball Coach at Nebraska Wesleyan University.
