Hello again, Cougar
Well, another week of
softball has come and gone. Our season is
slowly coming to a finish. As a senior, this
is a bittersweet moment for me. The real
world is quickly approaching as Meagan,
Jenn, and I are getting ready to close the
softball chapter of our lives. This week we
had four conference games. On Thursday, we
hit the road for Spring Arbor. The bus ride
seemed never-ending for us as we drove over
four hours one way! Unfortunately, we lost
both games against Spring Arbor.
Saturday seemed like a miserable day to play
softball because of the rain, but we hit the
field ready to take on Goshen. We played
well the first game, but were unable to push
enough runs across the board. The second
game was much better as we won 3-2. Ashley
Riffle picked up the win on the mound and we
earned our first conference win of the year.
This week we have four more
conference games. We take on Grace at home
on Thursday beginning at 3:00. We take the
field again on Saturday to take on
Huntington starting at 1:00. We love to see
our fans at our games and would love to have
Let me introduce you to
our two final juniors on the team this year:
Kayleigh Williams is a junior catcher
from Utica, Ohio who is majoring in nursing.
She is one of the toughest girls I know both
on and off the field! Her biggest fear is
alligators, which is funny because her dad
and brother both went hunting for alligators
while we were in Florida and both brought
one home! The song that she chose to best
describe her is American Honey by Lady
Antebellum because she is an all-American
Brittney Kuhn is our final junior from
Mt. Gilead, Ohio who is majoring in nursing
as well. She holds down second base for us.
She told me her biggest fear is birds, which
started out just as roosters but has
branched into birds in general. The song
that best describes her is Walk by Faith by
Jeremy Camp because even through the
struggles she seeks God in every situation.
Thanks for reading! Go Cougars!
