Batter Up

The North Shore Girls Softball league kicked off its 2015 season with a special opening day ceremony. The league honored three different teams who went to the state tournament, including the 8U, 10U, and 12U teams. Their success marked the first time in the league’s history where three teams advanced to the state tournament! The 12U team even qualified and played in the Western Nationals Tournament in Roseville, CA.

The league also inaugurated its first entrants into the North Shore Girls Softball Hall of Fame. The first award went to Coach Karla Wilburn, who played softball for Torrey Pines High School and the University of Virginia. She now devotes her time to the girls softball league as a coach. She hopes to continue to inspire female athletes as a coach and is extremely committed to the league. The entire Bulatao family was also inducted into the Hall of Fame. John Bulatao and his late wife spent countless hours coaching their three daughters’ teams and even coached separate teams when there weren’t enough volunteers available.

North Shore Girls Softball is looking forward to another season, and with over 250 players registered so far, it’s sure to be an exciting time for players, coaches, and parents.
