Strength, bonding, practice – the three most keen details for a softball team. This is all the team needs to make it to the top, their ultimate goal for the season to win state.

It is understandable that every team’s goal to win state, but softball has the game in their favor. They work together as one which improves their overall ball game.

Coach Rob Hehe said, “we have the talent to get the job done, but it’s the matter of making the team understand that you can’t play as individuals, you have to play team oriented softball.”

This mindset has helped the girls to reach their goals in previous seasons.

Becoming close definitely is apart of the game according to the players and Hehe. But what is unique to this team is their dedication to the field and attitude towards the game.

“We keep a fun upbeat vibe for the entire season,” senior Piper Lujan said.

They keep their practice light and uplifting; do not tear their teammates apart, but lift them up to make them better individual players, but also a stronger team. They train during fifth hour and after school which strengthens their physical, but also mental strength on the field.

Junior Saige Stutz said, “mentally getting it out of our heads that we can’t do it, but that we can actually win.”

It is all about the mindset of the game, and Hehe said, “we’re as good, or better than we were last year so we are looking to exceed where we did last year, so that means to make it to the championship.”
