The Copper Hills High School girls softball team had a signing party Jan. 16, and it was not for an autograph-frenzied crowd. Instead, six Grizzly players accepted scholarship offers to continue playing softball after they graduate from high school.

“A player cannot get to the next level by doing the bare minimum. These girls have worked hard for Copper Hills softball. They also did things on their own to make themselves better. I am impressed with their athletic abilities, but they are also well-rounded, good students,” head coach Jentry Johnson said.

Third baseman Emilee Sweet has signed to continue her career at Southern Utah University.  Brooke Bishop and Skylar Cook will attend The College of Southern Idaho.

Pitcher Payten Davies will go to Western Nebraska Community College, utility player Lexie Buttler will attend Colorado Northwest Community College and Tabi Atwood will attend Lamar Community College.

“I try to help the girls with as much as possible. I have helped them with prospect letters and try to give them advice where they need it. I am especially excited for this year’s team—we have a solid base of upper classmen,” Johnson said.

The Grizzlies are scheduled to begin their 2015 season March 5 at Stansbury High School. They placed second in Region 3 last season.
