Emily Bukkila

Brandon-Evansville senior Emily Bukkila was recently selected to participate in the Minnesota High School Fastpitch All-Star Softball Series held at Caswell Park in Mankato on June 9.

The event is the Saturday after Caswell Park hosts the softball state tournaments June 7-8.

“I am extremely proud of Emily for this honor,” B-E softball coach Kasi Sieling said. “Emily has continued to overcome any obstacle that has been thrown her way throughout her life and she truly deserves this recognition for all of her hard work and dedication to the Charger Softball program. Emily is a tremendous softball player and a great person who I feel honored to be able to coach and watch grow. It has been a great privilege to work with her over the years and I look forward to seeing all that she accomplishes.”

Bukkila is helping to anchor a Chargers team that is 12-4 after winning their 10th straight game with a doubleheader sweep of Hillcrest Lutheran Academy on May 14. She will continue her softball career at Division III Concordia College in Moorhead next season.
