Abbotsford's Jenna Cox is joining the Briercrest softball team this fall.

Abbotsford’s Jenna Cox is taking her talents to Saskatchewan.

The W.J. Mouat grad is set to bring years of experience to the Briercrest College softball team for the 2016 season.

Cox started playing softball at a young age and has played for several different teams since.

“When I first started playing at age 11, I started at the house level,” Cox explained. “I played for the Abbotsford Bandits for approximately five years of my house career, where we always came out on the top of our league until 2012 when we went to provincials and got smoked in the finals and came out with second in the province.”

After her time with the Bandits, Cox hooked up with the Abbotsford Outlaws, and then moved on to the Ridge Meadows Rage where she earned a most valuable player nod in 2015.

Briercrest softball head coach Carlie Pagens is pleased to have Cox join her team this fall.

“I am excited for the opportunity to coach Jenna this fall,” Pagens explained. “She brings a strong bat to our roster with a history of hitting the ball hard and contributing offensively at key times. Defensively, she is a strong infielder who is confident in several positions. Jenna has a sincere love for the game and passion to integrate faith and sport. I am excited to see the ways that Jenna will contribute to our team both on and off the field.”

Cox said she’s looking forward to arriving in Briercrest.

“I’m looking forward to so much about coming to Briercrest,” she explained, noting that she spent a semester in Austria last fall. “I’m so excited to be within such an amazing community of believers and athletes, and to also play softball with those who will also play for the Lord.”
