“I COULD GO ON AND ON ABOUT HOW MANY LIFE LESSONS THIS SPORT HAS TAUGHT ME, HOWEVER, I BELIEVE THAT THE MOST IMPORTANT LIFE ELEMENT THAT SOFTBALL HAS TO OFFER ANY YOUNG LADY IS THE IMPORTANCE OF FRIENDSHIP AND FAMILY WITHIN YOUR TEAM.  SOFTBALL IS DIFFERENT FROM ANY OTHER SPORT I HAVE PLAYED.  THE SPORT BRINGS A FAMILY ASPECT TO WHICH NO OTHER SPORT CAN COMPARE, AND IT IS DIFFICULT FOR ONE TO TRULY UNDERSTAND UNTIL THEY EXPERIENCE IT FOR THEMSELVES.

SOFTBALL HAS TAUGHT ME HOW TO MANAGE MY TIME PROPERLY AND TO NEVER GIVE UP ON SOMETHING ON OR OFF THE FIELD.  THE EMPHASIS ON THIS SPORT SHOULD BE PLACED ON THE PEOPLE.  THROUGH SOFTBALL, I HAVE MADE FRIENDSHIPS, THAT I KNOW WILL LAST A LIFETIME AND DEVELOPED RELATIONSHIPS WITH COACHES, WHERE I KNOW I CAN REACH OUT TO THEM ANYTIME.

THIS SPORT DEMONSTRATES THAT YOU WILL ENCOUNTER PLAYERS WHO MAY NOT HAVE THE SAME WORK ETHIC AS YOU.  YOU MUST PUT THAT ASIDE AND CONTINUE TO WORK ON YOUR GAME AND YOUR GROWTH.  WHAT SOFTBALL HAS TAUGHT ME IS THAT THE WORLD OFFERS MANY OPPORTUNITIES.  I HAVE MET AND COMPETED WITH SOME OF THE MOST WONDERFUL HUMANS ONE COULD EVER MEET.  I PLAN ON USING SOFTBALL AND ITS EXPERIENCES TO IMPACT SOCIETY AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE IN THE FUTURE.” – MOLLY LENNON
