TIMPSON, TX (KTRE) - Kaylie Bush will be taking her talents to Galveston and with her resume, it's no surprise seeing her continue her softball career.
A four-time letter winner at Timpson, Bush was named the Offensive MVP last year, and Catcher of the Year her sophomore year. Bush was also asked to try out for the Junior Olympic Team.
The slug hitter has been playing ball for 12 years and said she's looking forward to at least two more.
"Her bat is about five times the size of everybody else's, I think, because she can crush a softball," said Bush's high school coach Jerrod Campbell. "I don't coach that. It's just natural given ability, and it's nice to be able to have a player to one-swing and change a game."
"I'm relieved. It's a great feeling and it's always been my dream to do it," said Bush. "I just feel like I've accomplished something, but I still got a long ways to go to get there to where I want to be."
Bush said she is looking to study kinesiology as a student athlete.
