Libby High School softball senior infielder Emily Carvey signed to play softball at Miles Community College on Wednesday.
Carvey started playing baseball around age 3, due to the lack of a strong softball program in Eureka at the time, said her father, Floyd Carvey. She started softball in Eureka, and continued to play for the Loggers when her family moved.
Emily Carvey said she prefers the fast pace of softball to baseball. “Baseball, takes forever, it feels like, when you’re watching,” she said. “But softball, it’s more action right away.”
Carvey said she will study radiology, and chose Miles because they have a new program, which sounded like an adventure.
Carvey said she has always wanted to be in the medical field, and chose radiology in part because it would allow her to work in the field without have to deal as much with “blood and guts.”
