The Teton softball team’s catcher, Janie Nelson, signed with Miles Community College last week in Dickinson Miles City, MT.
Nelson is a multi-sport athlete, but softball is her first love. The senior captain played varsity softball during her four years at Teton and has served as their starting catcher for the past three. Nelson holds the fort down at home plate with a quick hand and strong arm. She’s also a force to be reckoned with at bat, according to Head Coach Jim Williams. The brand new program at MCC will give her an opportunity to not only play, but excel as an athlete. After visiting the campus and meeting future teammates, Nelson decided to be a Pioneer. It was a perfect fit.
“It’s really exciting to see her get the opportunity to play at the next level,” said Williams. “She’s a hard worker and I didn’t have much to do with her ability. She found travel teams to play with over the summer and went for it. She’s been a great leader on this team and her to desire to win has made her a really competitive player.”
