Why Kovatch chose MCC: "I chose MCC because the girls are extremely welcoming and give off a feeling of home which makes me happy. The coaches are amazing and helpful with what I want to accomplish in my sports and academic career. The community is supportive of the program and they are also good people. I am very excited to get to work helping the program in anyway that I can. MCC has a fantastic nursing program, which is what I plan on doing in my future!"
Coach Juarez on Kylie: "Kylie is a dominant product of Montana both on the mound and at the plate. We are excited for what she will bring to our program. Our pitching coach Jessie Brooks is one of the best and will help Kylie flourish even more. Kylie will be a big asset to our program and will continue to keep our high standards and culture on and off of the diamond. She is a great student and person, which is what we seek in a player! We are excited to add Kylie to our family."
