Like many of her peers, Braedee Weatherman of Minneapolis High School started her softball career at a very young age.
“I was in the second grade when I first started playing softball,” said Weatherman.
Now a freshman with the Minneapolis varsity team, Weatherman said she is excited to play at a higher level.
“The thing I love most about playing with the varsity team is the level of competition I see as a pitcher and the relationships with my teammates.
Speaking of positions, Weatherman will likely see time in other positions this season. While she is a pitcher, Weatherman can play shortstop and some outfield. She also plays on a travel team named Wildfire Select. Weatherman is setting goals for herself and the team.
“One of my personal goals is to become a more competitive pitcher and improve my hitting, and a goal we have as a team is to improve on our record from the previous season,” said Weatherman.
In her free time the freshman said she enjoys shooting baskets in the gym, and spending time with family and friends.
