Sometimes the perfect match starts by accident. Humboldt senior Winter Snyder’s pathway to softball success is a testament of this.
“It was kind of an odd experience,” Snyder said. “I was hanging out with my friends, and they were getting ready to go to a tryout for the Vipers. I was like, ‘I can go with you, it will be cool.’ I was there, and they didn’t have a catcher. I told them I could catch, kind of jokingly.”
As a freshman at Humboldt High, Snyder was already cemented into head coach Brad Piley’s line-up as the team’s catcher. And while Snyder may be an elite talent behind the plate, what makes her even more special is her ability to do it all.
