Torrin CrawfordMore updates from our college-age former players...

Torri Crawford (Walla Walla HS) just finished her first full-year of play at DI University of Idaho (after redshirting her freshman year.) (Fun Fact: Torri spent two years making the drive from Walla Walla to practice with Columbia and won a number of championships with her teammates due to that dedication.) Torri is majoring in Education at Idaho.

Jamie SteachJaymee Steach (Chiawana HS) is a Sophomore at Pacific University (and has both a current Columbia player and a coach in her family.) (Fun Fact: Power League teams sometimes play at Pacific University, so some of our current teams may be lucky enough to have Jaymee show up to watch them play.) Jaymee is headed to medical school after her time at Pacific is finished.

(Bonus trivia question of the day: Why might Jaymee have grown up as a Bulldog fan instead of a Riverhawk fan?)

Jaymee joins the steadily growing list of players we've seen visiting our practices already. We'll be excited to welcome both these ladies back as coaches in the future.
