Diamond Dreams -- Former North Hopkins star takes swings at college softball in Kansas

Jessica Harry has spent many hours on a softball diamond. The countless practices and games played are now all paying dividends.

After years of dusty bus rides with ice bags wrapped on strained aching muscles, her talents with the optic yellow softball are being parlayed into a college education.

There’s a catch to her being a catcher and the free ride to college — her scholarship is in Parsons, Kan. at Labette Community College.

Harry, a stellar pitcher/shortstop for North Hopkins, will be wearing the chest protector and shin guards behind the plate to fill a need of the Kansas team - squatting behind the dish.

“I played centerfield my freshman year, the last three years I have been at pitcher or shortstop,” Harry said. “Catching will be new, but it’s something I can do to help the team.”
