Two Oklahoma State softball players give back with camp at Latta
ADA, Oklahoma (KTEN) - It's not everyday that you get to hang out with a pair of Big 12 softball champions but that was the case on Friday for campers at Latta High School.
Former Lady Panther and Oklahoma State star Chelsea Alexander brought her softball skills camp back to Ada accompanied by Cowgirl teammate Sydney Pennington.
There were over 20 campers present, learning fundamentals and skills to go along with pictures and autographs from the two athletes who just recently finished their college careers by playing in the Women's College World Series.
"They're really fun," said Pennington. "Last year, we had a year left, so it didn't hit us yet that these would mean so much. Now it's a little bit different, we have to live through them now, just with us teaching and giving back our knowledge."
"That's a big reason that we do these camps, to give back to the next generation," said Alexander. "We don't get to play anymore, so investing in this sport in this way is how we get to give back."
