Softball captain, senior Savannah Romero said the upcoming softball roster has tons of talent and is looking forward to seeing what the team will accomplish this year.

“It looks like we could actually have a winning season this year, so I am really excited. Our senior class this year has some really good players,” Romero said.

Freshman Victoria Schmelzle said it might be an unusual season because they lost their pitcher last year and many other seniors.

“I think that it will be interesting to see how our team does because our pitcher left so it will be very interesting,” Schmelzle said.

Romero said their schedule might benefit them because Park has a good chance of beating the opposition.

“We play some of our easier competition more than a few times. I feel like that will help our record,” Romero said.

The team has had captains’ practices to start of the season and freshman Georgia Charpentier said the early practices are advantageous because everyone can get used to playing and create a good team dynamic.

“They will help us get back in the groove of playing softball and having practices — playing together,” Charpentier said.

Sophomore Hannah Howell said the team is focusing on making a bigger impact at batting while remaining dependable in the field.

“We can be more of an offensive threat and focus on batting while staying consistent when we’re on the field,” Howell said.


Charpentier is ready to get back to playing softball and is excited about the fields that have just been redone.

“I am looking forward to playing with my friends and getting back in the field,” Charpentier said. “We got new fields this year so I’m excited to play on them.”

Howell said she is excited for the season because she gets to play outdoors and she’s ready to work with her new teammates to start an ambitious season.

“I’m looking forward to being outside and doing what I love,” Howell said. “We’ll see who shows up but we’ll put together something and I think we’ll be able to compete.”

Girls’ softball has the last captain’s practice at 1 p.m. Mar. 10th at the high school. Tryouts begin Mar. 11th after school.
