Heart. Spirit. Perseverance. This year, Marymount’s 2016-2017 softball team pulled out all the stops at their games as they took on tough competitors such as Harvard-Westlake, Notre Dame Academy, and Flintridge Sacred Heart. Regardless of the score at any of the games, win or lose, the team has never given up and has never stopped cheering.

However, the softball team continues to reign victorious in their academic skills. For the second year in a row, continuing to make Marymount athletic history, the feisty group of girls traveled down to Angels stadium on April 25th to receive a banner commemorating their title as the #1 ranked small school with the highest GPA of girls’ softball teams (a whopping 3.8!!!).

Senior Genna Whittell, alongside Coach Troy, represented the team on the actual Angels’ field, where they held the banner up high and showed the entire stadium their Sailor Pride on the jumbo screen while the rest of the team cheered them on.

Aside from their academic achievements, the team has a lot to be proud of this year, especially as the talented freshmen additions pushed the team to be their best. Throughout the course of the 7 months they’ve been together, the team has relentlessly shown their dedication not only to the sport but to each other. Recently, the softball team just wrapped up a lot of their “lasts” of the season: last home game, last practice, last game in general, last huddle, last “Sailors on three: 1, 2, 3, Sailors!” However, being a part of the team myself, I can say with absolute certainty that the bond we have as a family could never be broken and the memories we made are ours to keep forever.

Finally, to the incredible seniors, in which the softball team will never be the same without — Caroline Cooper, Natalie Elliott, Lucy Isaak, Nikki Livitsanos, and Genna Whittell: there are no words to describe how lucky we are to have had you on our team. Thank you for being the amazing players and people you are.

And to the 2018-2019 Softball Season: bring it on.
