“Even though William Fleming is not the strongest team in our district, it is a district win. This is what we have been practicing for everyday is to get to our district games. We take each game one by one and work hard to improve both at the plate and in the field. Our momentum has been down lately and we seemed to find it today and stay up from beginning to end,” said coach Melanie Saunders.
“Often times it is hard to stay on top of your game when your competition is not that tough - but the kids stayed up the entire game. We were a little in front of the slower pitch - but we were able to get the job done at the plate as a whole,” said Saunders.
“We teach these kids more than softball on games like this. Empathy is so very important not only in sports but also in life. We could have scored many more runs than we did but we teach our kids to be respectful of the other teams and their feelings as well. This is something that some of the girls are not used to doing but they now understand the importance of empathy. You never know when the show will be on your foot and you would hope others would treat you the same way,” she said.
