Coach Wright has played softball for 22 years.  She has coached and/or provided private lessons or clinics for pitching.  In 2011, I was inducted into the Athletic Hall of Fame at Ohio Dominican University, as the first softball player in school history.  Over my many years of experience I have experienced many ups and downs because I come from a navy family who moved every four years.  Trying to get on a team or make a position required a lot of work and dedication. I want to bring my knowledge of the game and position to all the up and coming girls.
