My favorite memories from softball would be the bus rides to and from games where we would end up singing together. Playing for two years with my best friend, Destiny Upton. Making some crazy catches at first base. Dancing in the field during a rain delay at Cambridge Springs.
My favorite aspects of being involved in a sport is that it gives you something to work for, Softball allows for a team to work together for the same goal and to grow closer and create memories while doing so.
The part of softball that I will miss the most is probably my team, I loved being able to help the girls on my team work at growing their skills as well as building friendships at the same time.
Living through this crazy time in life has taught me that being able to interact and spend time with my friends is a valuable part of my life. While in this time of my life I have learned to work through hard times, keep my head up, and always turn to God with my struggles.
If I could travel anywhere in the world, I would probably travel to Vermont. Though this is not some extravagant place this is where the Morgan horse breed originated, and I would love to be able to see the different monuments and programs they have in place for the breed.
Dogs or cats: Dogs over cats any day!
My favorite hobby is horseback riding, showing in 4-H at the Warren County Fair, and just plain spending time with horses.
My favorite social media platform is probably Snapchat
If I could only choose one artist or group to have on repeat, I would choose Cody Johnson.
One thing that people may be surprised to learn about me is that even though it took our principal, both coaches, and half the team to talk me into signing up for softball this year, I actually like playing.
The best piece of advice that someone has given me is probably, to pray without ceasing. This is advice that I try to live by.
My plans for after graduation are to attend Great Lakes Institute of Technology for the Diagnostic Medical Sonographer.
The message I have for underclassmen is to always try your hardest no matter how good or bad you think you are, always find someone to believe in you, and believe in yourself. Play the sport, do your best, strive to win, and take pride in your school and especially take pride in your team.
