DCHS Tigerette, Kayla Fish, will continue her softball career at Maryville College, next year. The senior made it official on Tuesday, as she signed an athletic scholarship with the East Tennessee school.
Fish will be coached at the four-year program by her brother, Danny Fish, a DCHS alum who just completed his sixth season as head coach of the Scots program. Danny Fish said he believes Kayla will fill a void on his team, and will be a team player, despite the family connection.
"I know it'll be a sister playing for her brother, but it's going to be tough; tougher on her than it will be on me," Fish said. "I like to think of myself being able to differentiate the relationships between brother and sister, and player and coach. Kayla shoud be able to come right in, if she works really hard, and help us out. We lost a couple of outfielders from this season's team, so we'll see what happens."
