Brinkmeier to compete in Australian softball tournament

Brinkmeier hopes that the experience will lead to additional travel opportunities or as a springboard into the coaching world.

“It’s enough for me just to go there and compete,” said Brinkmeier. “Even if we lose, it’s about the experience…but I’m going to win.”

In addition to representing the United States and Port St. Joe at the tournament, she’s also excited to get some relaxation in during the international trip.

“According to the itinerary, they’ll teach us how to surf during the day and we’ll get to tour the zoo,” Brinkmeier said.

On June 22, a fundraiser will be held for Brinkmeier at the Rustic Sands campground from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. CT featuring food, drinks, raffles and live music. Funds raised will go toward her flight to Los Angeles.
