Girls ages 7 to 17 who want to improve their softball skills are invited to attend Benedictine University’s annual softball clinic from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Friday, December 5 in the campus’ spacious Dan and Ada Rice Center. The clinic is designed for young players who want to become more knowledgeable in the fundamentals of softball. Players will receive individual instruction from Benedictine University softball players in the areas of pitching, hitting, defense and base running. Benedictine University softball coach Kate Enochs-Keller conducts the camp. Enochs-Keller has led the Eagles to four Northern Illinois-Iowa Conference titles and three berths in the NCAA tournament during her 11 seasons as head coach. Clinic participants should bring a softball glove and wear gym shoes. Campers can bring their own bat if they wish, but bats will be provided. The fee is $35. The camp serves as a fundraiser for Benedictine’s softball team. For more information, call (630) 829-6140.
