Bruins News · Saluting Our Seniors: Softball 2020


As we reach the time that we would have been hosting our spring sports senior night celebrations had the season not been interrupted, we would like to take a moment to honor this outstanding group of 2020 senior student-athletes.  We will be releasing them as a team. Today we honor our softball 2020 senior class.

Broadneck Bruins Softball Seniors 2020 

Coach Yeatman reflects on the Class of 2020: 

“This senior class is a very special one. With a change in the head coaching position going into their senior year, this group was stepping up to make their mark. While they are a small class with only three softball athletes, they are a dynamite group of leaders; each one brings something different and unique to the team. We were very much looking forward to seeing what this small group of powerful ladies were going to lead this team to accomplish this season. There is no doubt each of these athletes will do amazing things in their future. Good luck and put your best cleat forward!”

Bruin Softball Seniors (Coach Hamilton also contributed to the player highlights):

 Julia Harrison – 4 years in the program – 4 year varsity member 

  • Julia is an exceptional athlete.  She did it all for Broadneck softball playing shortstop, third base, second base, outfield, and pitched.  Not only did she play these positions, but she played them all extremely well.  She was a first team All- County selection in her sophomore and junior seasons, and undoubtedly would have done the same in her senior season.  Her competitive desire is what pushed her to get a little bit better every day.  A highlight of her career is when she hit for the cycle against the Howard County champions, Hammond High School.  This fall Julia will be traveling south to attend the University of South Carolina majoring in Sports and Media Marketing.

 

Shania Kellison– 4 years in the program – 3 year varsity member

  • Shania is one of the hardest working kids out there.  She truly wanted to improve herself as a player for the good of the team.  Her hard work was evident in her improvement over the years.  The best thing ever was seeing her smile after she came up with a big hit, you could literally see her pride beaming through!  She truly represented all that is good about sports and was an absolute pleasure to have as part of the Bruin program.  Shania will continue her education at George Washington University studying International Business.

 Elizabeth Shafer – 4 years in the program – 4 year varsity member

  • Elizabeth is one of the best leaders to ever come through, not only Broadneck Softball, but Broadneck High School. Her success on the field comes from a true desire to be the best version of herself. She applies the same work ethic off the field as well.  She always made sure that every one of her teammates knew what was expected of them and it was evident that her teammates always looked to her for guidance.  A true leader and class act.  Elizabeth will continue her softball career at the University of Dayton and will be majoring in Engineering.
