Brianna Bowers is a junior at Napa High and is also a player on the varsity softball team. Bowers has been an avid softball player for 8 years and intends on playing in college. “I plan on attending San Diego State on an athletic scholarship.” Bowers has already verbally committed to San Diego State. Even after college, Bowers intends on keeping softball a part of her life. She wishes to continue playing after her college career has finished.

 

Bowers, whose number is 36 for the Indians, plays outfield. Playing softball is something that has always been relevant in Bowers’s life due to the fact that her mother played. Bowers is now following in her mother’s footsteps. Her mother also played softball in college and played for around 11 years. Bowers’s mother is one of her biggest inspirations on and off the field. Her mother helps her to push herself farther and work even harder on softball and academics.

 

Besides softball, Bowers is also a hard worker off the field. “I take 5 classes with 1 honors class. Even with the semi light class load I am under a lot of stress. I can only imagine what it is like for the other students who have an even bigger and more challenging class load than me.” Outside of softball and school, Bowers likes to spend the rest of her free time with her family.
Bowers’s does not just like softball for the sport, she likes it for the strong connection she shares with her teammates. “We are all a family and we take care of one another on and off the field. I know that if I strike out there is another girl right behind me to pick me up.” Bowers says there is no connection like the one that you share with your team, “It is truly a one of a kind relationship.”
