As this softball season comes to a close, some seniors are saying goodbye to the sport they’ve played for years, as the juniors are preparing to step up to the plate.
Seniors Brianna Gonzalez, Kayla Moore, Megan Teal, Megan Confer, and Chloe Rentzel are saying goodbye to Red Lion.
“My fondest memory would be the bus rides and hanging out with my team, and doing team bonding stuff,” Moore said. “I’ll miss my teammates the most, because they are like my family.”
Moore will be attending Stevenson University in the fall. She plans to continue playing softball in college, and will play for intramural or rec teams.
Teal plans on playing softball as she attends York College. She would like to keep adding onto her ten years of experience, because she has enjoyed the sport very much.
“I’ll miss the bus rides and my teammates because of how fun they are,” Gonzalez said.
Unfortunately, Gonzalez can’t play her favorite sport while attending Alvernia University because she will be in the nursing program. Stepping away from the plates will be difficult for Gonzalez, because her softball career has lasted ten years after her dad got her to try the sport at a young age.
Confer agreed with her other teammates in saying that she’d miss the bus rides with her teammates.
“We sing and dance and do weird stuff on the busses,” Confer said.
She will play softball next year at Lock Haven University.
Rentzel had trouble thinking about her fondest memory. “This is so hard,” Rentzel laughed. “There are so many I love.” She will not be playing in college and will be attending Temple University.
Juniors Hailey Inguanti and Hayley Taylor will be taking over as the captains next year.
Inguanti has stuck with the game because she has a strong love for it. She has had many colleges looking at her and is very interested in Indiana University of Pennsylvania.
“I’m just going to do what I’m doing now and do whatever I can to help next year,” Inguanti said.
Taylor is currently being recruited by York College for field hockey so she will not be playing softball after her senior year.
Taking the title as one of the leaders next year is a big responsibility, but she is ready to take it on.
“I’d like to keep it fun and simple and keep it light out there,” Taylor exclaimed. “Not too much stress.”
