Sophomore, Cydney Drousias, has been playing softball since she was 6 years old. She had the opportunity of playing varsity softball taken away from her last year due to covid. Despite this, she was still able to gain advice from all of her fellow upperclassmen. She learned a valuable lesson that most players don’t have to face until their senior year; play every game like it’s your last. We had the chance to interview Drousias and see how Covid has impacted her previous season, and what her plans for this season is. Drousias is ready to hit the field as a new addition to our varsity team, here’s what she had to say.
