Briercrest Athletics is excited to announce that Outlook, SK’s Kenzie Derdall will be suiting up for the Briercrest softball team this season.

Head coach Carlie Pagens is excited for what Derdall will bring to the team, both on and off the field, this year.

“Kenzie is a top pitcher who brings significant talent to our lineup,” Pagens said. “Watching Kenzie play, it is impossible not to notice her calm demeanour, extreme focus, and confidence on the field. She has performed consistently both offensively and defensively all season. I am excited to work with Kenzie this season and watch her continue to grow.”

The 5’ 6” pitcher began playing softball at a young age and has looked back.

“I played with the Conquest Coyotes from Parent Pitch age to Bantam,” Derdall said. “I have been playing for the Saskatoon Selects (Saskatoon Minor Softball Association) for midget ball.”

Derdall has experienced some team highlights the last few years.

“I was a 2012 Western Canadian Gold Medalist in the Bantam age,” Derdall said. “I have had a number of highlight in 2014, including participating in the Canada Cup in Surrey, BC. I will also be playing in the U18 Canadian Championships being hosted in Saskatoon, SK, August 4-10.”

Derdall is looking forward to attending Briercrest this fall.

“I’m excited to play ball at a university level,” Derdall explains. “I’m looking forward to beginning my school career to become an Elementary School teacher, and attending a small college with a focus on academics, sport and faith.”
