After helping Steinert’s softball team to a state title and a state final in the past two seasons, Carli Backlund has proved her worth enough to play Division 1 softball next year. Backlund signed a Letter of Intent earlier this week to play for Central Connecticut in the fall of 2018. Carli is flanked by her parents, Jeff and Jackie, on the left, and her grandfather, George Przecha, on the right. In the back (from left) are softball coach Jean Ruppert, Principal Nate Webber and brother Matt.
