Q: What was your reaction when you found out spring sports were canceled this year?

A: “I was very sad to know that I won’t be playing my final softball games with the girls I’ve grown up playing ball with the past couple years.”


Q: What is something you will always remember from playing softball at SHS?

A: “I will always remember hanging out and sharing moments with my crazy teammates, whether it be on or off the field.”


Q: What do you see as the most important thing you’ve learned from being a part of this program?

A: “I’ve learned the importance of being a team player and knowing that it’s about more than just yourself.”


Q: Do you wish you would have been able to play with your sister, and what’s it like knowing this was your last chance?

A:  “We only got to take the field a couple of times together last year since she was only a freshman, so it would have been nice to get the opportunity to have done that one last time.”


Q: What are your plans for the future?

A:  “I will be furthering my education at UIndy this fall but leaving my softball career at Southport High School.”


Q: Is there any advice you’d give to younger athletes playing softball as SHS?

A: “Play every game like it’s your last, and always leave it all on the field.”
