The Atlantic Cape Community College softball team started practice earlier this month for the upcoming season.
That may night seem so unusual, but not long ago, there wasn’t a team at all. Not even a club team.
Thanks to the help of first baseman Brittany Yachere, female athletes now have the opportunity to continue their softball careers at theMays Landing community college.
In preparation to attend ACCC, Yachere searched the college’s athletics page on its website. When she saw there was no softball team, she contacted the athletic director at the time and told him she wanted to play. She played a substantial role in forming a club team in 2009.
