It’s softball season here at Armuchee High. This year the J.V.and Varsity teams are coached by Shane Arp, with assistant coaches Hannah Everett and David Honea. The softball team is 3-2 in the region. With against Gordon Central (12-7), Model (13-2), Chattooga (3-0), and Coosa (15-0) and with two losses against Rockmart (2-0) and Pepperell (9-1).

This season the softball team has six seniors: Erin Carney, Livia Skinner, Karson Fallin, Kassidy Kinsey, Lily Watson, and Savannah Poole. Fallin said, “I am very excited about this season because we have the potential to go far.” The seniors have been together for six years and grown in so many ways . They have improved, battled injuries, and experienced great friendships together. Skinner said, “My favorite thing is how all of the girls are so close, and we are basically like a family.”  Madysen Hurley, sophomore said, “I am very excited about the season because it’s my last year to play with this group of seniors.” Aleigha Allmon, Junior, said, “My favorite thing about the season is the camaraderie and friendship.” Taylor Harris, Junior said, “Our motto ‘Today’ pushes me to do my best.” The motto “Today” is what the team uses to motivate themselves. Everett said, “The reasoning behind ‘today’ is that you do not get this current day back for a redo, so take every opportunity with pride and make the very best of everything you encounter.”  Harlie Lewis, junior said, “My goals for the team this year are to make it all the way to state and win it.” Players hope to go to state playoffs. Last year the softball team made it to state but couldn’t pull off the win. Skinner also said, “I am very excited about the season because I feel we can take it all the way to Columbus.”

Everett said, “I love being around my all of my girls every day and being able to talk, hangout and play a game we all love so much.” The team  plays for each other and has to overcome adversity. This could be when there is a  tied ballgame each inning and they have to fight for the win. Everett said, “My favorite memory from the 2016 season is when we split with Heard County and during our third out of the third game, the girls played until the very last out of the game, even though we ended up losing, players  made a huge positive step toward this season.”  That is adversity when you battle so hard and loose, you come back stronger and ready to fight.  This season the softball team has already overcome this challenge.
