From Coach Owdienko
Every group of seniors has their own set of stories, memories and special place in a coaches heart. This group is no different. Though the season was cut short by a pandemic, we still had an opportunity to start the season, and this experience only adds to their story.
I have known this group of seniors since they were in middle school, a few of them have been on Varsity for four years, others only 2 or 3 but regardless they made an impact on the softball program as a whole. I have been able to watch them grow and develop as players on the field, but more importantly as humans in life. It has been a pleasure and an honor to coach this group of wonderful, young women.
We are quick to comment on all you have lost, and though those experiences are real and significant, do not let it define you or change your thoughts on what you have accomplished. You have done so much in your career and the challenges you face now will only serve to help you in the future.
I hope that you can take pride in the athlete that you were, that you are, for the hard work you did to get ready for this season and the years of hard work in the past, and the memories you have made. I am, and I couldn't be prouder of you all, and especially how you have handled this surreal experience.
You are going to do great things and I cannot wait to see where life journey takes you. Remember though, Once a Brave....
