Hi Softball World,
WOW, it has been a crazy couple of weeks! It has been a whirlwind of emotions. My heart is still heavy as this season abruptly came to an end. One minute, my team and I are gearing up for spring break. The next, I am packing up my stuff to go home, not to return to school or return to play for the rest of the season. It saddens me that one minute I am having the best time of life, playing the game I love, playing with my teammates, being around great coaches, and playing in front of my family. To one of the worst moments of finding out my games for the rest of the season were canceled; everything I had worked for just gone. One lesson I am reminded of through all of this is to NEVER take your time on the field for granted. Your time on the field goes by fast and it can be taken away at any moment. Everyone should be playing like it is their last game. My heart goes out to all the seniors and all the student-athletes who have been affected by this.
During the first 24 hours after the announcement, I felt so lost and confused. I thought it was so unfair, so ridiculous, and mostly I thought everyone was overreacting. But as time goes on, I realize this is so much bigger than myself. I also understand that from here, we have two options. 1) Stay at home and feel sorry for ourselves or 2) Get back to working out as much as possible to have an even better season come next year. I choose the second option. We all have to keep working one day at a time. I do not know what the future holds, but I do know we will get through this.
To my LMU girls: from the first pitch to the last pitch, there was never a dull moment this season. I am proud of every single one of you! We made the most of this short season beating #4 LSU and #13 Michigan was just the beginning. We will be back bigger, stronger, and better than ever! We have unfinished business to take care of.
As a reminder, keep washing those hands and keep doing your part to stop the spread! Stay safe and stay home! Hope you enjoyed reading my blog. If you have any questions, please feel free to comment below and I will do my best answering them at the end on my next blog. Thank you for reading!
