Bozeman & Helena Players join Electric City Heat Softball

Posted: Updated:
 Bison mingling with Bengals? And what is "Bruin" between the Rustlers and the Hawks?

The Electric City Heat are made up of softball players from Great Falls, Helena and Bozeman. They travel far, but say it's worth it.

"Just the competitiveness and just all these girls who have so much talent," says Bozeman High pitcher Hope Titchbourne. "And playing on such a high level. I was just really interested in it."

The team is comprised of two class AA all-state players and four all-conference players. They all competed against each other during the high school season but the grudges didn't carry over when they took their talents when they joined the Heat.

"It's weird for sure seeing them in their heat colors instead of their colors," says Titchbourne.

"I was a little worried about it because, I was like, y'know, there's that tension," says Capital grad and Carroll signee Destry McNellis. "But now that I came here we've become so close and we get along great."

"Getting to play with people that you play against in the season is good experience and it's a lot different," says CMR All-State Pitcher Quinn Hartman. "It's really fun."

But the travel does add up in both gas mileage and practice time.

"Being from out of town, sometimes practices are difficult," says head coach Lauren Engle. "But when we do get everybody together, they've really formed a cohesive bond unit and they've gotten to know each other and become really good friends on and off the field."

This weekend it won't matter if you're a Bozeman Hawk or wearing Rustler Green. The team will head to Missoula to compete in a seven team state tournament where the only logo that will matter is the Heat
