COVID-19 has put softball's season on hold, but the team is still working out via instructions posted on Canvas. “I enjoy doing the workouts because it forces me to get up out of bed,” junior Sue Slater said.

Taking their typical practices to online instruction, softball is one of the many sports whose season is on hold due to COVID-19.

‘We have weekly workouts for the girls to do and post on canvas,” head coach Jill Bradshaw said. “Athletes then post pictures, videos, or write something following their workouts.

Junior Sue Slater finds the workouts helpful.

“I enjoy doing the workouts because it forces me to get up out of bed,” Slater said. “ We also had a Zoom meeting to catch up with everyone.”

Although the team does not know what is in store for the remainder of the season, they are hoping to get to play a few more games. 

“We still do not know the full impact on the 2020 softball season,” Bradshaw said. “UIL has postponed all games for now, which means we are not cancelled and still have a chance to finish out the year in some fashion. I look forward to getting more information from UIL.”
