          BELLINGHAM, Wash. – Seven recent high school graduates, three of whom played at Kamiakin High School which won a third straight Class 3A state championship last spring, will play softball for the Vikings beginning this fall.

“We have a large class joining us this season and I couldn’t be more excited about this group,” said WWU head coach Amy Suiter. “We have athletes that have done big things in their youth careers and we are excited for them to start their journey to the next level as Vikings!”

Making up the 2014 class are first baseman/designated hitter Emily Benson from Kamiakin in Kennewick, infielder Megan Jewett-Chan from Todd Beamer in Federal Way, first baseman Katelyn McDonald from Arlington, utility player Sarah Morrow from Enumclaw, outfielder Carlie and shortstop Cylie Richards, twin sisters from Kamiakin, and pitcher/shortstop Makinlee Sellevold from Cascade in Everett.

In this Sept. 26, 2013 file photo, fans watch during the third quarter of an NFL football game between the St. Louis Rams and the San Francisco 49ers at the Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis. Pro football may have a firm foothold as America’s game, but in baseball-mad St. Louis the NFL is decidedly second fiddle. The St. Louis Cardinals can anticipate a red army at Busch Stadium for Game 5 of the World Series. Eight blocks away at the antiseptic Edward Jones Dome, the Monday Night Football matchup between the struggling St. Louis Rams and the Seattle Seahawks will likely feature a backdrop of thousands of empty seats.
