WCH Cougars softball team enters 5th season

By Bev Mullen - For the Record-Herald

In its fourth year, the Washington Court House Cougars, a girls traveling softball league, finds itself in the envious position of growing.

The fledgling team that started in 2014 with 13 girls has blossomed to 63 girls from Washington C.H., Miami Trace and Hillsboro junior and senior high schools.

The girls travel throughout central Ohio during June and July and for die hard fans of the sport there is a weekend tournament scheduled for June 30 and July 1 with games to be played at Eyman Park, Christman Park and the Washington High School field.

Amy and Greg Knisley are the coordinators for the Cougar’s Traveling Team. The Knisley’s are grateful for the Community Recreation Leagues.

“The girls learned all the basics of softball through the dedication of local citizens coaching them. But there was no place to go from there. The girls wanted to progress, to move forward with their skills.”

Move forward they have.

This past weekend, the Cougars Travelling Team held their inaugural 5K Spirit Run at Christman Park. There were almost 50 players and parents participating with a handful of observers present. Part of the proceeds of this event will be donated to The Well at Sunny Side.
