It’s all fun and games until somebody breaks a fence. This is exactly what senior Sarah A. did.

“She was running for a fly ball that was gonna be a home run,” said senior Destiny R. “She was hauling, and it was gonna be really good, then–crunch. She broke the fence. It took 20 minutes to fix it; it was great!”

“When I realized I hit the fence I thought, ‘Oh my gosh, I’m going to get so much crap for this,” Sarah laughed.  

In spite of the collisions, the Lady Longhorns had a successful season this year.

One of their goals was to win more games than they did last year. They accomplished that goal.

From the van rides to those awesome plays on the field, they had a fun-filled season.


Andrea P. cheers on her teammates from the dugout.

This season the girls struggled with weather on their home field and had to wait out some rain. The players sometimes had to put tarps on the field and then take them back so they could play their games. Plans were made to put new dirt on the field so that doesn’t have to happen anymore.

Junior Lauren G. said, “It sucks when it’s muddy, and I hate it when it’s windy.”  In spite of the fact that the softball team had to battle the unpreditable weather throughout their season, they didn’t let a little wind and mud get them down.

This year there were seven seniors on the team; next year’s team will have only four.  Junior Andrea Page is very excited for her senior year.

“I will get to make more decisions,” she said.   

She is looking forward to picking what clothes the team wears and whether they dress up for games or not. Andrea is also looking forward to getting to be a leader on the field.
