2008 BCC Softball Team
FOUR BULLDOGS COMMIT
June 20, 2008
After helping BCC to a school best 42-6 record four of BCC's sophomore softball players have committed to continue playing at four year institutions.
Erica Addison, 2008 North-Region Player of the Year and 2008 NWAACC All-American, has committed to play for the University of Nevada Las Vegas (UNLV). Addison, a sophomore shortstop from Anacortes finished the season with a .469 batting average with 12 homeruns and 61 RBI. UNLV is a Division-1 program and should prove a great transition for Addison as UNLV assistant Coach Sara Pickering was a teammate of current BCC Head Coach Leah Francis at the University of Washington.
Outfielder Dawn Norcross, two-year first team North-Region selection and 2008 NWAACC All-American selection, has committed to play for Montana State University-Billings. Norcross, a graduate of North Mason High School, finished her sophomore season with a .417 batting average, 10 homeruns and 52 RBI. MSU-Billings is a Division-2 school competing in the GNAC and is coached by former Big Bend CC coach Tony Stone.
Joining Norcross at MSU will be second baseman Whitney Whittemore and pitcher Christine Miller-Long. Whittemore batted .420 with 6 homeruns and 40 RBI and was named to the North-Region first team in 2008. Miller-Long was a North-Region selection during both her freshman and sophomore seasons and finished the 2008 season with an 18-2 record, a 2.56 ERA and a .306 batting average.
"I am so happy for each of these players," stated BCC head coach Leah Francis. "All four of them were an important part of this BCC program the past two years and have worked hard to earn the opportunity to continue their softball careers. Each of them will be greatly missed, but I know they will excel at the next level. They are all great leaders, teammates, dedicated players and represented BCC with class - I feel blessed to have had the opportunity to coach them. I am very proud of and excited for Erica, Dawn, Whitney and Christine and look forward to watching their continued success!"

Thank you for your interest in Bellevue Community College and the softball program!
The BCC Softball program is coming off a great 2007 season where we posted a 38-12 record and recorded our best finish in school history at the NWAACC Championships! In 2007, BCC spent the entire year ranked in the Top 8 in the NWAACC’s. During the 2006 and 2005 seasons the team won back-to-back division titles posting a 38-9 record in 2006 and a 30-13 record in 2005 and qualifying for the NWAACC Championships both seasons.
During our first three years with the program, we have had a number of all-league players including having seven first team and one second team selection in 2007, five first team, two second team, and the pitcher of the year selections in 2006 and three first team and two second team selections in 2005. During the 2006 and 2005 seasons, Caitlin Storkson was named an NWAACC All-American – the first time an award has been given to a BCC player!
We are very excited about the future of the program and with a great group of returners and newcomers, look forward to building on last season’s success!
Our goal as a staff is to provide our players - the softball student athletes at BCC - with a community college experience that offers them the support and knowledge to help them become better students, better athletes and better citizens; to provides them the support and knowledge to make the transition from high school to a 4-year college or university as well as to provide them with a top-notch program that they can participate at for 2 years. To learn from each other, to work hard, and to enjoy the entire experience! We are dedicated to bringing BCC to the forefront of community college softball programs in the Pacific Northwest and we believe we have the ambition, desire, background and knowledge to make this happen!
We are very excited to have a chance to work with quality student-athletes at BCC and are dedicated to providing them with a fundamental background that will help make them successful at this level and the next! We expect our athletes to give 100% at all times in the classroom and on the ballfield and we are committed to giving them the support to help make them successful. Above all we will strive to make this an experience that they will enjoy and have fun with!
