St. George, Utah hosts 2022 World Softball Championships this month, with Dawson Creek's Roxy Honing representing Canada on the Lady Gray Jays team.
“We’ve got women from Atlantic Canada, and right across to British Columbia on the team," she says.
While she is often representing BC and Canada – Dawson Creek’s Roxy Honing was recently down in Las Vegas, Nevada helping out Washington State at midfield and centre field in their world qualifier.
She’s thinking this spring might bring ball camps in the area for youth.
“I’d like to keep the sport active in Dawson Creek and area, and introduce kids and the younger generation to the sport,” she says.
Honing says support local from businesses, including the Dawson Creek Mirror, help spread the world about the sport and cover equipment and travel expenses. “McLevin Bros., United Spring and Break, Cartwright Ranches, Moat Farms, Harp’s Process Servers, and Rebel Fitness are all board.”
