When the pandemic was fresh in March of 2020, the softball team was in Florida for spring training. The pandemic became worrisome during our trip, and upon our arrival home we learned that we would no longer be having a softball season. All of our games, practices, and team events were cancelled. It was a terrible feeling to discover that all of the time and effort we put in leading up to the season was all for nothing, or so it felt at the time. It was a terrible experience for the seniors and non-returning players because they played their last game without knowing it was just that, their last competitve softball game. The joy the sport brought to us all was taken away from us with no warning.
