The instructors are members of the Postma family from Madison. Brooke (Postma) Edgar, Brittany (Postma) Green and Brianna Postma all played collegiately at SDSU. Brooke, who now lives in Rockham, SD, holds the single-season and career record at SDSU for stolen bases. Brittany, a teacher at GMMS in Pierre, was an All-Summit League first team selection. Brianna will graduate from SDSU this spring and finished her Jackrabbit career with a .417 batting average. Their father, Bud Postma, will also be an instructor and has been involved with mens’ fastpitch softball in South Dakota for many years.
