The season has started, and practice has begun. Softball JV and Varsity girls have been practicing and ready to play. Games have started but, because of the weather some games have been cancelled and rescheduled both teams have been working hard to get ready. Even though some games have been rescheduled games have finally started, and varsity and JV teams are ready. The JV softball team looks as if the team is getting into shape right along with our varsity girls as well.
Softball all has different meanings to us, but they all come together and in the end they mean the same thing. Softball is a way to do something after school, or to get some exercise. “Softball has always been a way to get frustration out, and it also helps the stress level go down,” says an anonymous softball player.
On a softball team, you practice together, play together, win or lose together. You’re a team, you play together as one, we encourage each other, we have fun at times, but when we need to be serious you are. Playing a sport isn’t always about winning: it’s about having fun, and putting in all the hard work you’ve been practicing. Losing isn’t always the best, but as long as you know you’ve tried, and had fun then that’s all that matters.
