On Tuesday, November 26, 2013 the Montgomery Catholic Preparatory School athletic department held a signing ceremony for senior, Kirstin Wood at 2:45 p.m. in the Montgomery Catholic High School campus library. With her parents, Patrick and Julie Wood looking on, Kirstin signed her letter of intent to play softball with the Martin Methodist College RedHawks in Tennessee. The event began with prayer by principal, Chad Barwick, followed by opening remarks and congratulations from school president, Anne Ceasar. Montgomery Catholic’s Varsity softball coach, Britt Taylor, spoke about the “hard work and determination” that brought Kirsten to this level, and he spoke fondly of the “lifetime” that he has spent coaching her, starting in elementary school. 
Wood, a five year MCPS Varsity softball player, has received the Leadership Award in softball for the last three years; she was a Jimmy Hitchcock Nominee as a freshman, a Montgomery Metro Softball Team Honorable Mention as a sophomore and an All State Softball Team Honorable Mention as a junior. She is also an accomplished four year Varsity basketball and volleyball player for the Knights. 
An exciting day for Kirsten, she had the support of family, friends, teammates and former coaches as she signed to continue her softball career for the next four years. Five of her former softball coaches were present to congratulate her alongside MCPS Coach Taylor; they were Bill Barranco, Marty Britt, Mike Hale, Tori Hollis and Mike O’Connor. Martin Methodist Head Softball Coach, Brandie Paul made the trip from Pulaski, Tennessee to be with her newest player. Kirsten started her speech by thanking Coach Paul. She said “I would like to thank Coach Paul for giving me this amazing opportunity to play for Martin Methodist College. This has been a dream of mine since I was a little girl, and I could not miss such an amazing opportunity like this.” She also thanked her school, her former coaches and her parents for giving her the support to reach her goals.
 Kirsten shared a favorite quote with her guests, “A journey of a thousand miles begins with one step”. Montgomery Catholic is excited for Kirsten to take this first step in continuing her athletic career in college, and looks forward to her many accomplishments yet to come.
