Freshman Lucy Fajatin Joins Varsity Softball Team


By Parker Kilen

This year, the varsity softball team has a starting freshman on the team: Lucy Fajatin who is a starting outfielder and has been hitting, fielding and playing well. On her very first at bat she hit a home run. She is very excited to be a starter on the varsity softball team and looks to get better as a teammate and player.

“Everyone is so nice and so welcoming,” Fajatin said.

According to head coach Mike Freedline, Fajatin has been showing a lot of promise. He and the team are proud to have her as a part of the softball program.

“Just knowing that we’ll have her for four years, going down the road [is] really going to make a big impact on our program,” Freedline said. “Just to keep hitting, get better at playing her position as she get’s used to playing three years above them since she’s been playing her age group.”

Overall, the team is very happy to have Fatita on the team, her and the team are all expecting a great season.

“Well, this year it’s cool that we have girls of all grades on the team,” pitcher Audrey Sevier said. “So it’s cool to mix around with different classes and I think we’re going to have a really positive team.”
