Was there someone in your life who got you interested in coaching? I had two amazing college coaches, and I knew after playing it was something I wanted to do.
How long have you been coaching for? I started coaching at 20. I had my own summer ball team in Utah. I started at CNCC in Fall 2007, so a total of 5 ½ years.
Did you participate in this sport in college or high school? I played softball all through high school, starting as a sophomore. I moved on to play at Salt Lake Community College for my two years with the Bruins. I was a starting catcher, helped lead the Bruins to their first trip to Nationals, and helped add another region championship. I had a scholarship to the University of Utah, but after my shoulder surgery, I never recovered so I had to end my softball career. › Continue reading

Last weekend, the CNCC Spartan softball team won 3 out of 4 games against Western Nevada College.“Our pitching staff really stepped it up this weekend,” said head coach C.J. Wilson. Highlights of the games included freshman Camille Brimhall hitting a two-run walk off in the bottom of the 7th inning in Game 2 on Friday and a two-run homer in Game 2 on Saturday.
Wilson said that freshman Ashley Hobbs also played outstanding defense. The first game’s score was 1-4 in favor of Western Nevada; the rest of the games CNCC won 7-5, 4-2, and 4-3. The softball team would like to thank volleyball coach Richard Barker and the volleyball team, as well as the women’s basketball team, for helping with the games this weekend and supporting their fellow athletes.
The next home games are April 16 and 17 against SouthernNevada. Students and CNCC employees are urged to attend! Game times are 1 and 3 p.m. on Friday and noon and 2 p.m. on Saturday.
With the 2010 softball season underway, the Spartan Times decided to sit down with head softball coach C.J. Wilson and talk about the upcoming season, predict outcomes, and discuss players.
Wilson started at CNCC in the fall of 2007 as an assistant coach for softball. However, before she landed the job, she played for two years at Salt Lake Community College as a starting catcher. She had plans to play at University of Utah but had shoulder surgery and never recovered to continue playing. While playing for Salt Lake her first year, she met a Rangely local and has been with him since. › Continue reading
