Photo submitted Softball team hosts clinic James Wilson Sports Reporter In a win-win for the Portola High softball team and the players of the Portola Little League, the softball team held a clinic April 13 for the young up-and-comers to learn basic fundamentals of the game. Twelve Little League players showed up for the clinic, which was taught by Taylor Prosser, Samantha Britt, Dayna Cormany and Alli Ramelli. The high school softball players focused on throwing, hitting and fielding drills. "All the Little League players had a really great time," said Portola High's softball coach, Karl Popish. "I'm glad we were able to do this before the Little League' opening day, so they had specific things to practice." Each participant not only got one-on-one training from a high school player, but received a T-shirt as well, commemorating the clinic. The inaugural clinic proved successful enough for Popish to already start planning a clinic for next year. "Though we only had four girls from the high school's team teach the clinic this year,they had a blast and thought it was a really good thing to do," continued Popish. "Next year I'm going to try to get the whole team involved in the teaching aspect of the clinic." Portola High School pitcher Sandra Kibble was unable to attend the clinic, but is now helping Little League pitchers learn different pitching techniques. A small fee was paid by each Little League player to participate in the clinic and receive the T-shirt. All proceeds went to the Portola High softball program.
