GRAFTON—The time many young athletes have been looking forward to for nearly a year is just around the corner.
After canceled seasons and delayed start times, many local sports teams and ecstatic to once again be hitting the field or gym.
And locally, the Grafton High School Softball team is more than ready to get back to work and start to settle back into some form of normalcy.
The Grafton High School Girls Lady Bearcat Softball program will resume practices on March 15.
The team, led by head coach Tyler Cox, and assistance coach Gary Chambers, has long awaited the opportunity to once again play the sport they love and are prepared to work hard and be ready for the well anticipated resumption of competition.
“We are excited about this year’s season. We had some girls working hard this off season and over the summer and that will pay off.” stated Cox.
The Lady Bearcats will be feeling the loss of team MVP Mia Chambers, as she will be sitting out this year’s season due to a torn ACL.
“Mia will surely be missed, but she will still be part of the team helping in any way she can,” he lamented.
The Lady Bearcats will be entering play this year with a young but optimistic squad.
“The girls work hard, and we will be striving to make good clean plays and just play solid fundamental ball,” Cox added.
As for his philosophy on coaching he noted the importance of working on a good solid pitching game, in additional to being spot on with their hits, forcing their opponents to field the ball and get the outs.
The team ready to move beyond the COVID-19 situation and get back to playing ball.
We look forward to seeing the GHS Lady Bearcats Girls Softball take the field in early spring.
