Northwest head softball coach Chelsea Bramlett has announced details for her program’s Power Hitting Clinic, scheduled for Sunday, December 10.

“This clinic is all about learning to hit with more power,” Bramlett said, regarding the event. “We will show each participant a few tips on how to do that with their swing, and by using drills they can do at home.”

The clinic is open to high school freshmen, sophomores, juniors and uncommitted seniors. The cost is $65 per participant and slots are limited to 30 participants.

All interested participants can email Bramlett (cbramlett@northwestms.edu) to reserve their spot.

In four seasons commanding the Northwest softball program, Bramlett’s teams have dramatically increased productivity at the plate, shattering nearly every offensive record. The 2022 Region 23 championship squad smacked 60 homers, while the 2021 squad ranks second in a single season with 51 home runs and last season’s team ranks third with 45 homers.

Seven of the top home run hitters in program history have played under Bramlett, including career record-holder McKaylee Polk (Memphis). Polk, now a member of the University of Memphis softball program, left Northwest with 42 career homers, surpassing previous teammate Saige Koczka, who left the Rangers with 26 home runs.

Other notable heavy hitters include Kaitlyn BednarekMolly HarrisMaddie BrowerCaylee Comer and current sophomore Kara Johnson, who accounted for seven homers last season.

Bramlett’s teams have also set new records for most doubles, triples, hits, runs batted in, batting average, slugging percentage and runs scored since taking over the program reins in 2020.

The clinic will be held at the softball facility on the Senatobia campus and will run from 1-3 p.m.
