COLUMBIA FALLS WILDKATS

By John Heglie

Last season the Columbia Falls Wildkats were a mere couple of outs away from sending the undefeated semifinal game into extra innings.  Had they succeeded, one is left to speculate whether it might have changed the ultimate outcome of the tournament.  Two seasons ago at the 2012 tournament, the Kats would finish 4th.  Last year they climbed the postseason ladder another rung to finish with 3rd place hardware in a bronze medal.  Based on a charting of their trajectory, one is inclined to surmise that their softball program is on the upward ascent, which puts their fellow divisional rivals on notice that these felines are not to be trifled with.  Columbia Falls returns a quartet of accolade accentuated athletes.  Their most decorated is 2013 all-tournament, all-state, twice all-conference (1st-tm 13, 2nd-tm 12) junior pitcher/infielder Ashley Trueblood, otherwise identified merely by the moniker acronym of AJ, who compiled a 15-10 won-loss record and batted almost .400 with double figure extra base hits that generated over 20 RBIs.   Providing her run support as well as backing her up on defense is twice all-conference 2nd-team Dakota College Bottineau bound senior utility Tiffany Hummer (circa .300 Avg with fistful of xtra base hits as well as RBIs / vb 2x all-conf [2nd-tm 12, hm 13]), all-tournament junior shortstop/pitcher Winter Kemppainen (circa .300 Avg, handful of xtra base hits, RBIs / gbb all-state, 2x all-conf [1st tm 13-14, 2nd-tm 12-13] / vb all-conf 2nd-tm) and all-conference 1st-team junior outfield/infielder Carlee Brown (upper .300 Avg, handful of RBIs).   Rounding out the returnees include a trio of seniors in catcher/infielder Courtney Murray (.200ish Avg, dbl digit hits, handful for xtra bases, dbl digit RBIs), infielder Lauren Fields (circa .400 Avg) as well as infielder/outfielder Amanda Morrison (mid-.200 Avg, dbl digit hits, handful RBIs) and another trio of juniors in outfielder/infielder Madi Fetters (.300ish Avg, dbl digit hits w/ 1HR, handful of RBIs), catcher/infielder Breanna Friar and outfielder Kaitlyn Hoerner.

On account of the amount of snowfall this winter that is reputed to be the most in some 70 years, the team has not had an opportunity to play outdoors on their field.  Consequently, others may be integrated into the roster once skill levels can be more adequately ascertained.
