FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — Brooklynn Munch, a Saulteau First Nation member and former resident of Fort St. John, will represent Team BC at the 2023 North American Indigenous Games (NAIG) this summer.
According to Munch’s mother, Cathleen Berry, the 15-year-old billets in Salmon Arm and plays for the under-17 Okanagan Elite softball team. Previously, she would travel to Grande Prairie to play, as well as Prince George, where she trained with Northern Baseball Training.
Berry says she is proud to see her daughter’s hard work and dedication pay off.
“To come from a small town with not a lot of options – she just puts in the work,” said Berry.
“The work ethic definitely shows, she’s hit some big goals.”
Munch says she is thankful for her parents and coaches, who have helped her succeed throughout her baseball journey.
“It’s such a good feeling to represent Fort St. John and Saulteau,” said Munch.
“I want to thank my parents and coaches for helping me get to where I am as an athlete and person. The dedication and hard work I’ve put in for softball has shown, and I’m proud to play at a higher level with a great group of girls.”
The North American Indigenous Games kick off in Halifax, Dartmouth, and Millbrook First Nation in Nova Scotia from July 15th to 23rd.
