Softball’s Top Hits


Juli Mostillo, Sports Reporter

When softball players were asked about their hype songs, Kaydence Humphrey and Reece Waid responded that they prefer country music- specifically “Heartless” by Morgan Wallen. AD Engle prefers to listen to “Walk ‘em Down” or “Timber” by Pitbull and Kesha, Whitney Goodwin listens to nothing because she sleeps before games. Several of the players pregame rituals are laughing, sleeping, getting their hair braided or braiding hair, and enjoying teammates’ company. The players overcame Covid-19 challenges by wearing masks and playing every game like it is their last because you never know when it might be. The last question the players were asked a quote that they would live by this softball season. Engle’s quote was “sometimes I feel like giving up, but the I realize I have a purpose”. Humphrey’s was “the harder the battle, the sweeter the victory”. Waid’s quote was “Play every game like it’s your last”, and Goodwin’s was a quote Coach K tells her players often: “trust the process”.
