In Owensboro this weekend, a group of girls from Shelby County High School will make a bid to be the best among the state’s softball teams.
They begin on Friday morning against top-ranked Christian County on a journey of hope and desire against 15 teams from around Kentucky.
Several of these young women are seniors playing for the final time. Some will go on to play in college. Others will give up the sport.
We remind them that this is a great moment in the limelight, and we encourage them to enjoy it to the fullest, because they likely will never have another one like it. Pause and bask in the joy of competition and sport, and don’t let winning and losing dominate every emotion. Soak it in.
These girls’ emergence to win the district and regional championships show their fight and grit, and they are great examples for all of our young athletes.
We wish them luck, but more than that, we congratulate them for their already successful season.
