Camryn Jurcich views the new softball field at Fort Vancouver High School like looking at a piece of artwork.
“This field is absolutely beautiful,” said Jurcich, the Trappers’ junior shortstop. “We’re going to take amazing care of it, and we hope other teams that come out here treat it with just as much respect because it’s a blessing.
“Coming here and seeing the field gives us a new respect for the game.”
Players and coaches echoed similar statements describing a top-notch facility that welcomed La Center, Hudson’s Bay, Washougal and host Fort for the inaugural Trapper Softball Classic on Saturday.
The four-team tournament, spearheaded by fourth-year coach Erick Johnson, served as the official grand opening of the field that includes an all-weather turf surface, larger dugouts and bullpens, a new electronic scoreboard and upgraded sound system.
All were on display on what players and coaches described as a perfect day at a perfect facility.
