MONIQUE HOLLOWAY was recently selected to play on a year-round select fast pitch softball team in Early. The Texas Independence Softball Organization was established this year in May to provide girls the opportunity to participate in softball at a higher competitive level than that afforded by recreational leagues. Holloway attended a tryout session where the girls were evaluated in fielding, batting and base running. She will represent both Brady and the state of Texas at ASA and other softball organization tournaments throughout Texas and the nation. The goal of the Texas Independence Softball Organization is to improve the overall quality of girls fast pitch softball in Central Texas and surrounding areas. The team is coached by Gilbert Contreras of Early.
