Going All Out
Fast Pitch strives for domination
They grew closer as they practiced so they would dominate on the softball field. No opportunity for improvement was ever passed up. These Fast Pitch girls all shared a mutual love for their sport, and the dedication of each player was seen in the way they performed.
Some of the girls shared a favorite memory from the season. Maddie Goins, 9, favorite moment was “when we were sitting on the side of the road waiting for the other bus to pick us up” after the bus broke down on the way to regionals. Meg Wynn`s highlight of the season was “getting to know the team and going to regionals.”
Playing their best was a key component to their success. “To hustle means to always try your best and work your hardest at all times. It’s one of the key things of being a good softball player. My old coach used to say ‘you could be the best player on the team but if you don’t hustle, you don’t play.’ It also says a lot about your character,” said Claire Barker.
Of course, behind every great team was a supportive coach. “I enjoy coaching kids and seeing them get better,” Coach Matt Davis said. Being the coach was an important role for helping the players improve their skills to have a better chance at victory.
With the skills of the individual players, excellent coaching and some successful teamwork, these girls played their way to a winning season.
