Vlahopoulos inks next level for CCC

By GREG WEBB

BROCK — It took a while for Kaila Vlahopoulos and the softball program at Central Christian College to put eyes on each other, but the wait was worth it, for both, when all was said and done —and eventually inked.

“[Central Christian head coach] Chad Kerr sent me a letter back in November,” Kaila said. “ He said in the letter that I was a prospect and he would like for me to have a tryout for the team.

“We kept in contact from then until March, and I finally went up there during spring break for the tryout.”

Vlahopoulos found an immediate comfort level at CC, which is a relatively small school, much like she had been use to at Brock.

“I really enjoyed the visit,” she said. “I got to meet the team while I was there and really liked Coach Kerr, as well.”

The outfielder said the tryout went well and the coach was happy that Kaila could play multiple positions.

Located in McPherson, Kan.,  Central Christian is approximately a six and a half hour drive from Brock. Kaila is OK with the distance, knowing her parents are less than a work day away. She also said her folks are ‘kind of’ alright with the potential trek.

“Mom was OK with where [CC] is located,” she said. “I think my dad realized there are a lot of places in Texas I could have gone that are much further away [than Central Christian], so he’s OK with it, too.”

Central Christian is part of the Midlands Collegiate Athletic Conference and under the guidance of Coach Kerr has already made positive strides in his two years as head coach.

“They are still rebuilding, but they won more games last year than the year before,”Vlahopoulos said of the program. “[Coach] is bringing in several new players this year, like me, and wants to build up the team from there.
