Visit softball teams and love Yuma

If you’ve been to downtown Yuma or the Yuma Palms shopping and entertainment center since Saturday, you’ve likely seen the large groups of young women in town for the Division I National Junior College Athletic Association’s softball championship. In their matching team uniforms and sports equipment, they can be recognized in local restaurants and shops.

Zoe Lott plays for Grayson College in Denison, Texas, an hour north of Dallas on the Oklahoma border. The Vikings have toured the city and the players have been seen wearing glittery cowboy hats.

“Yuma was amazing,” said Lott. “I mean the city is great. The people here are so nice. So far it’s been great. “

Grayson coach Mike McBrayer said when his team travels during the season they don’t get the kind of hospitality they experienced in Yuma. He said he liked the scenery.

“It’s really pretty,” said McBrayer. “I love the valleys and the farmland, the granite mountains in the background. The climate has been great so far so no complaints with anything. ”
