Evart senior reflects on softball career
EVART -- Abby Apsey's athletic career at Evart has ended, a few months earlier than she had anticipated.
Aspey was expecting to be a key player for this year's softball team as a senior. But the coronavirus episode canceled the season.
This would have been Apsey's second season. She played junior varsity her first two years.
Her first varsity season "went pretty good," Apsey said. "We had a new coach (Amanda Brown). She did really good. I really enjoyed her. She was the assistant the year before."
Aspey had played some summer softball before hurting her knee. She anticipated playing third base or second base. The team had a week's worth of practices before the season was called.
The infield Apsey said, had some good communication.
Last season, "I hit pretty well toward the end," she said. "You have to be able to have your timing right."
The end of the season after one week was frustrating.
"I wish we got to have it because this would have been my last season," she said.
Apsey also pitched in the past and was slated to pitch again this season.
"I worked on it all winter every Wednesday with Amanda," Apsey said, "and we did hitting on Sundays. "We had good freshman (Addy Gray) who was going to be our main pitcher. I do have a changeup, a fastball and a curveball."
Softball was her only sport. He plans to attend Ferris for a master's degree in social work. But she'll miss Evart softball.
"I'll miss all my teammates and the memories we made," she said. "I think we could have pretty good this season."
