Tennessee-bound Nicola Simpson leaving a legacy in Garfield’s softball program: SBLive Washington podcast

On this week’s episode of the SBLive Washington podcast, Andy Buhler, Todd Milles and Dan Dickau discuss how Gov. Jay Inslee’s announced rollback of three counties to Phase 2 due to a rise in COVID trends impacts high school sports and the tragic death of Colville football player Dale Martin stemming from a brain injury suffered in-game.

Then, Garfield senior pitcher and Tennesse signee Nicola Simpson joins (16:35 minute mark) to talk about how her athlete-laden family pushed her to continually improve, Garfield’s improbable and historic 2019 3A softball state title run and her budding shoe collection, among other things.
