Sarah Wright is a real dirt bag.

The Coupeville High School grad plays select softball with SnoCo Express Fastpitch, but, for that team’s final tournament, its leader decided to mix things up a bit.

“Our coach gave us Dirtbag uniforms as a way to inspire us to play for each other and to leave it all on the field,” Wright said. “And he told us that yesterday we finally earned them.

“Our coaches are good old fashioned baseball players,” she added with a big laugh.

Inspired by the upgraded uniforms, or driven to go out on top, as it was the end of the road for this team, the Express/Dirtbags roared through the tourney in Auburn, claiming 2nd place when all the dust had settled.

“We played really well,” Wright said.
