STRUTHERS OH- The position of catcher is a hard one to step into at the varsity level even with experience. Now imagine coming into your freshman season and being told you’ll be the varsity catcher. That’s the situation Mileena Williams found herself in for Struthers. But the newcomer took the role in stride and has dazzled all season long.
Williams came into the year nervous about how she would gel with the Wildcats varsity team. She quickly discovered that the atmosphere of the program was nothing to fear. She has become comfortable in her role so fast that she is now one of the statistical leaders of the team. She has been a pleasant surprise for the entire Struthers coaching staff. She’s got plenty of time to keep progressing behind the dish, which should scare all of the Wildcats future opponents.
Williams was able to spend some time with YSN’s Running Point to talk about her experience this season. She talks with Anthony Hartwig and Ty Bartell about her expectations coming in, everything that she learned during the year, and so much more.
