The ladies of the Sparta High School Varsity Softball team are superb, amazing, legends... and a myriad of other words that simply do not do them justice. Led by Coach Poots, the ladies played game after game with only one loss and too many wins to count. They have gone through the 2018 season like the champs that they are, making it to the Sectional Finals.
For many of the members on the team the loss against Indian Hills may seem distressing, but without a shadow of doubt, the amount of wins and losses mean nothing without heart - and the ladies have an abundant amount of spirit and drive. Watching them play together on the field is nothing short of extraordinary, and the ladies have many accomplishments this year to be proud of. In every, hit, bunt, catch, and pitch, the passion the girls have when they are playing is phenomenal. No matter the score, they kept playing harder because the desire to always to better kept them going.
Congratulations to three seniors who are going on to play in college:
- Jessica Esso, incoming catcher and outfielder for Bloomsburg University
- Erin Scott, incoming right fielder for Lafayette College
- Carolyn Jacobs, incoming first baser for New Jersey City University
A final congratulations to all the ladies on the Varsity Softball team. All the ladies played wonderfully this season, great job!
