Outfielder Denise Carriere was first exposed to softball when she was
working as a bat girl on her brother's team, and started playing at age 13.
A high school physical education teacher, Carriere was a member of the Pan
Am Games team for both 1995 and 1999, on of only four returnees from the
1995 team. A strong hitter, Carriere says that defeating the U.S. at the
1997 Pan Am qualifier was a very memorable career highlight. She enjoys
basketball, volleyball, track and field, and alpine skiing when she isn't
on the softball pitch.
