Girls Softball Gets Ready For Season


Emma Tincher

Girls softball is starting up, but it is looking a little different than it usually does. Due to COVID-19, the girl’s season was cancelled in the spring of 2020. This devastated the team, especially the seniors, as they had worked so hard all winter to prepare for the season. This year, however, workouts are looking a little different. Due to restrictions, the girls are having to workout on their own, instead of the normal gym time they used to get.

But, these restrictions are not stopping the girls from preparing for the season. The girls are continuing to push themselves to work hard and are finding new ways to team bond. One way these girls bond is through service. Whether it is at Cultivate Culinary, where the package meals for the less fortunate, or at St. Margaret’s House, where they help mothers and children, the girls continue to come together as a team to help others and one another.

As the season creeps around the corner, the girls are anxious to begin playing. Seniors Maddie James, Anna Skwarcan, Shea Ruszkowski, Aimee Bossler, and Emma Tincher say they are blessed to be able to play this year and finish off high school right. When asked what she was most excited for, Maddie James responded, “the bus rides with my teammates because it is a place where we come together and just have fun”. The team continues to have fun on and off the field, where they build lifelong relationships with each other. 

The girls are beyond excited to begin to play the sport they love with the people they love this spring, and thank Saint Joe High and their Coach Keith for bringing them together.
