    Jackie Burdette


    Jackie is a junior here at LHS who plays varsity softball. The girls had a scrimmage on 3/23/17 against Oberlin and crushed them 10-0. This is a good sign for hopefully what turns out to be a great season. I was able to interview her during class and ask her a few questions about her love for the game.

    Q: How long have you been playing softball?

    A: I’ve been playing for seven years and I still love the game.

    Q: What’s your favorite part of the game?

    A:  I love the games that come down o the wire. The competition and focus is something that can’t be beaten, win or lose.

    Q: Why did yo first start playing the game?

    A: It’s the “family sport” kinda thing. It’s been a tradition in my family that the girls play softball and I fell in love with the game.

    Q: What are your future plans for you and the game?

    A: In a perfect world I want to play for as long as I can. I am sure I will play my senior year but I do not know what I am going to do in college because I think it’s going to be a lot to juggle.

    Q: What is your favorite memory from playing the game?

    A: In the summer of my seventh grade year I played for a team that wasn’t all that good but I was selected to the all-star team. It got rained out but I met a lot of cool people and made some friends even though we didn’t get to play.
