As the spring sports season rolls around, the girls softball team starts up and the Bruins are excited to see what they can bring to the 2022 season. 

Every player has their own unique goal for their season. Freshman varsity player Faith Johnson explained her main objective.

“A goal for my season this year is to hit a home run,” Johnson said. “I haven’t hit it in two years so it’s going to take some time.” 

Gretta Barrieau, a sophomore varsity player, stated her own goals for the season.

“[I hope to] improve and become more of a team by the end of the season,” said Barrieau.

As the team practices and works together, everyone is excited to create bonds with their teammates and become a family.

Johnson expressed her hopes for the team as the season progresses. 

“I’m very confident in my team.” she said. “I believe we will get far the more we practice and get to know and trust each other better”

Sophomore Gina Genovese complimented her team for their hard work during practice.

“Everyone is playing really well together and that’s helping us make less errors,” Genovese said. “We’ve gotten a lot better at our plays.”

Barrieau added that she has a very strong team.

“We are all very good athletes and are capable of doing our best,” said Barrieau.

The team is full of hard working players, many who have known each other for years. If the softball team collectively continues to put in the hard work during practice, they have a great chance of doing well during their season.

“I’ve been playing for around 10 years” said Barrieau

“I have been playing softball for about 8 years,” Johnson added. “I started off playing 3 seasons in rec and playing competitive travel-ball for 5 years” 

Both varsity and junior varsity have been playing at scrimmages, preparing for their league games. Johnson gave insight on how their first tournament went.

“We just played in a tournament on March eleventh,” Johnson said. “We only practiced four days together before that tournament and we had some really good bats and fielding.”

Genovese agreed with Johnson’s statement, including that she hopes that they keep improving.

“Our first games have gone well,” Genovese said. “We haven’t won all of them but we still worked hard and played well as a team. I hope we will have beaten a lot of teams and improved our playing by the end of the season”

The teams are working their hardest towards a successful season that the Bruins won’t forget.
