Berne-Knox-Westerlo softball player Kaitlyn Curvin was recently named a Western Athletic Conference First Team All-Star, the only one from her school.

Curvin, a sophomore, is one of 15 softball players ranked as the best in the conference among around 140 players, said her coach, Gary Morin. She was named a second-team all-star last year.

“She doesn’t get overpowered by better pitching,” Morin said this week, adding that Curvin can play any position on the field. If she continues with her progress — this year with a .788 slugging average and a .519 batting average — Curvin would be the first BKW student to be an all-star four years in a row, he said.
