With softball season coming, the girls are beginning to prepare for games within the next few months.
“I’ve already told several of the girls that I think they’re at a crossroads right now and they could really shock some people and surprise some people in the coming season. If they come in wanting it to happen, I think they can have an exceptional season,” head coach Darrell Henze said.
Within the coming season, the team will also participate in several important tournaments.
“The Western Big 6 will be tough as far as competing. We also have a tournament in Springfield where we will be playing three games, and we have our home tournament that we will be playing here as well,” Henze said.
With the hype building for these tournaments, expectations for the team are set high.
Henze tells his players to, “come in and push yourself, as hard and as fast as you can go. When you try to practice as fast as you can and truly focus at practice, the game begins to slow down and becomes a lot easier. [Another expectation is] to not focus on the mistakes but develop the knowledge in order to correct them on your own.”
With a new season always comes new challenges.
“With any year, pitching is a challenge. All my pitchers are coming back this year as sophomores, and they got a lot of experience last year. The biggest challenge probably for them is still learning the game and handling emotions and channeling those into energy on the field,” Henze said.
