Bartlesville Softball Captains Q&A with Cassie McCurdy & Kyla White – Presented by Tulsa Bone & Joint

VYPE: How long have you played softball?

Cassie: I have played for 10 years.

Kyla: 13 years.

VYPE: What has been your most memorable moment as a senior? 

Cassie: My most memorable moment as a senior would have to be senior night.

Kyla: When we played Enid for the first time this season, my grandma came to that game and told me to hit a home run, and my reaction was a sarcastic laugh until I hit it over my second at bat. 

VYPE: What number do you wear and why?

Cassie: 12, because I’ve been wearing it since I was little.

Kyla: 19, that’s my birthday and nobody ever wears 19. 

VYPE: What do you love most about your team and teammates?

Cassie: I love my team and teammates because we all bonded very well throughout the season.

Kyla: I love the atmosphere; even when we were losing, we knew things were better than they had been and that we could only improve. 

VYPE: Do you play any other sports?

Cassie: No.

Kyla: I threw shot put, but now I’m focused on getting ready for college softball. 

VYPE: Let’s talk about those teammates! Who is the loudest? Who has the best jokes? Who can sleep anywhere? Whose uniform is always dirty after a game?

Cassie: Victoria Post is the loudest, Rhi Silva has the best jokes, Nina Moore can sleep anywhere (she would always sleep on the ground on bus rides), Lexie Burton would be the dirtiest after games.

Kyla: Vic is the loudest, while Syd is definitely full of jokes. Nina can sleep ANYWHERE, and I would say the dirtiest uniform goes to Cassie. 

VYPE: What are your plans after you graduate?

Cassie: My plans are to attend college at UCO in Edmond.

Kyla: I am still visiting and finalizing where I am playing college softball, after that I want to attend Oklahoma State University and then live a happy life. 

VYPE: What will you always remember about your time as a Lady Bruin softball player?

Cassie: I’ll always remember my coaching staff and my teammates.

Kyla: When I hit my lowest point and no longer wanted to play softball, my former assistant coach, now head coach, was there to provide the support I needed to keep playing softball. It means everything to me and I owe it to coach Minton for helping me grow as a player and person.
