As the snow starts to melt and the air starts to heat up, spring sports are starting to roll into their respective seasons. With the last season of her high school career looming, senior Sophia Rose looks to take advantage of the opportunity.

“Softball has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. Joining the team in 8th grade showed me how competitive I truly am and gave me the confidence to pursue other interests in my high school experience,” Rose said.

She is entering her fifth season on the varsity softball team. Coming off an 11-11 season last year, the girls are looking to improve and rebuild under the leadership of Rose.

Joining the team in 8th grade showed me how competitive I truly am and gave me the confidence to pursue other interests in my high school experience.”

The goals for this season, Rose said, are about growth: “This year will be all about rebuilding and teamwork. With only three returning players on the varsity team and nine freshmen joining the program, we will have a very young team. However, that also means that we have a lot of potential for growth and success.”

Having previously been the captain for the volleyball team, Rose is prepared and excited to lead the team: “To me, being a captain is primarily about leading by example — particularly with such a young team that will be new to the program.”

After this year she plans on playing softball for an intramural team in college; but until that day comes, she will be leading the Spartans by example.

“My fellow captains and I will need to act exactly how we hope our teammates will and how we would like the program to be represented as to set the tone for this year,” she said.

The softball season opens Mar. 27 vs. De La Salle.
