Our Athlete of the week this week is Emma Bailey. Emma is a senior and has been a starter on the softball team all four years. “She has stepped up to being a team leader on and off the field”, says coach Bradley Strickland. “She finished the week batting .526 with two doubles, one Homerun and seven RBI’s.” Emma says she tries, “really hard to be a good role model for underclassmen and I have been performing well lately.” Her plan after high school is to attend college for softball. Her favorite memory from softball is, “getting Krispy Kreme after region wins with the team.” Emma’s advice to younger players is, “Enjoy it. Seasons fly and before you know it, you’ll be playing your last time with those people. Listen to advice people have to give you.”
