Senior pitcher, Kristin Guzak finished the season with 70 strikeouts.
The seniors did a great job supporting our younger players. As a result of their investment, our underclassmen improved, and we now have the potential of another strong team.”
– Coach Branch
With 7 senior players, the 2018 season will be a rebuilding season for the softball team next year, but the future is bright with many rising juniors ready to step up and take on the challenge of leading the team. Senior pitcher, Kristin Guzak left the team with this encouragement:
We grew so much as a team from weekend-long tournaments and hours in the bus together. I am so proud of how each of the girls finished the season and I will miss this team so much. I cannot wait to come back to support the team next year!”
One of the highlights from this season was Senior Night when Legacy played THESA, taking the game into extra innings. Although they lost, senior Gabi Langille commented,
It was one of the best games we played all year. Each player's bat came alive and produced when we needed them to. We fought till the end; it was a great game.”
Coach Branch will continue to coach the girls next year and is looking forward to seeing more talent come up from the middle school.
