Name: Katrina Magaro
Job Title: Fastpitch Event Director
Family: My parents are Tony and Susan Maestas, my brother is Scott Maestas and my in-laws are Joe and Sharon Magaro. I have a handsome husband named Mike (who also works at Triple Crown) and a very talented 17-year-old son named Mason! Our fur crew consists of three dogs and a cat – a Saint Bernard/Black Lab mix named Shia, a German Shepherd/Australian Shepherd mix named Gordon, a very old and crabby Lhaso Apso named Scooper and the sweetest orange tabby named Alan.
Hometown: I have had the privilege to grow up as an Air Force “brat” and had the opportunity to live in South Dakota, New Mexico, Sicily, Italy, California, Wyoming and my now home Colorado.
College Attended: University of Colorado-Colorado Springs
Sports Background: Ever since I started playing softball my one and only goal was to be able to go on and play in college. My proudest moment is getting recruited to play at the next level as a starting freshman pitcher.
Hobbies/Outside Interests: I am a lady of many interests! I love to go fly fishing with my husband, hiking, camping, snowshoeing, paddle boarding, reading, crafting, decorating, refurbishing antique furniture, golfing, playing catch, coaching … the list goes on and on.
Favorite trip: I have been lucky to take a lot of great trips in my life, but my favorite trip was when we took my parents, Tony and Susan, to go visit my now in-laws, Joe and Sharon, in Pennsylvania to see all of the fall foliage! Little did I know this trip would be life changing for everyone, since this was where Mike asked me to marry him in front of both of our families!
How did you first become associated with Triple Crown?: I first became associated with Triple Crown when I was in high school as a player on the VERY new competitive softball team. I then interned for a summer during college and worked with Patty Harsch to help her with slowpitch events. A few years down the road I was hired on full time as a Fastpitch Event Director and have been with Triple Crown for almost 9 years now.
What intrigues you the most about Triple Crown?: What intrigues me is being able to see all of your hard work come together and being able to create events where hundreds of teams and families attend, knowing they will have lifelong memories on and off the ball fields!
