Canada Futures Back To BPC
Brewton-Parker head softball coach Madison Herrin has announced that the softball program will continue to partner with Canada Futures Softball Tour for the 2021-22 season.
Brewton-Parker is excited to welcome the Futures back to Mount Vernon in October.
The Canada Futures is an organization that was created to support talented high school girls that are interested in pursuing an athletic career in college. The team travels throughout the country touring colleges and universities to get a glimpse of the studentathlete experience in the United States.
The Canada Futures program is set to resume after not being able to travel due to COVID restrictions last season. The program is excited for the opportunity to resume touring and showcasing the talent from Canada.
The organization is led by Joni Frei, who was a Hall of Fame student-athlete at Georgia College. She continues to be an impactful leader and is known around the world for her contributions to the softball world.
The Canada Futures last visited Mount Vernon in 2019. Several athletes from the program have been recruited by Brewton-Parker and have played for the Barons. Assistant coach Sadie Rusteika competed with the Futures for two seasons and had expressed her gratitude for the impact the program made in her life. “This program has helped me so much towards becoming a college athlete,” Rusteika said. “I am so grateful for the experiences from my time with the Futures. The experiences go beyond just athletics and have greatly impacted many aspects of my life.”
Brewton-Parker has a long-time connection with the Futures program as Coach Herrin’s wife Lindsay previously played for Brewton-Parker. Coach Herrin expressed his excitement for the program to return to BPC. “I am excited about the opportunity for the Canada Futures to return to Brewton-Parker,” Herrin mentioned. “The connection that we have with the Futures is fantastic. I appreciate the work ethic and passion for the game that the athletes possess.”
