BSC STAFF: Hi Michelle
BSC STAFF: So what have you been up to
since the World's.
Michelle: Nothing really, enjoying spending time with my fiance' and
my new baby boy.
BSC STAFF: Speaking of World's, how
disappointing was it not to defend your title?
Michelle: Well that was very disappointing but we all know you win
some and you lose some. Also, very hurtful because I could not
participate in it cause I had just had a baby. Especially being as
competitive as I am, I just felt helpless that I couldn't contribute
anything. Only my cheers and prayers!!
BSC STAFF: Supersonics won some of the
biggest BSC regular season tournaments last year, The Derrty in St.
Louis and The Robert Jackson Memorial in Tallahassee, before heading
to Worlds. So your confidence in repeating had to be pretty high.
Michelle: Of course! Everytime we step on the field we expect to win.
Most people would consider that being cocky, but to us that's
confidence and heart!
BSC STAFF: What was your favorite BSC
Michelle: The world in Birmingham, Ala., it was crazy at first,
especially trying to find all the different parks, but for the most
part I had a ball. I got to see some great games!
BSC STAFF: There has been some big roster
moves made in the Womens Competitive division, but nothing being heard
out of the Supersonics camp. Does this mean the same group is coming
back in 06?
Michelle: Basically!!!!! And also the one that had babies last year.
BSC STAFF: Year in and year out the
Supersonics has been near or at the top of their class, how have you
ladies been able to keep it together for so long?
Michelle: First and foremost we are a team; trials and tribulations
come only to make us stronger, individually as well as collectively.
Secondly, we love the game of softball. Last but not least, there is
one chief and we are the Indians.
BSC STAFF: As a team 2006 did not end
like you would want it to, but as an individual you accomplished a lot
professionally last year. Care to share with the rest of BSC on your
Michelle: I graduated with honors as a Certified Medical Assistant, I
birthed a beautiful 7pound 13ounce baby boy, and I accepted the
engagement of my wonderful fiance.
BSC STAFF: It was definitely a busy year
for you; do you think you have lost any of your competitive edge on
the softball field?
Michelle: Words cannot express what i feel about getting back between
those white lines. If anything, sitting out this past year has only
made me more eager to play ball. So the competitive edge has just been
raised another notch.
BSC STAFF: Have you started preparing for
the upcoming season yet?
BSC STAFF: What are you or your team's
off-season workout regimen?
Michelle: Exercise for more endurance and batting practice.
BSC STAFF: What are your goals for 2006
as they relate to softball?
Michelle: To be the best we can be on and off the field. Because we

on BSC and its growth?

car rental, different parks to host tourney's, etc.

playing on the BSC circuit?
