By Marquise Poncelet

The Huskies of North Lakes Academy have started their softball season. Their first game was against Legacy Christian on April 11. Coached by Morgan Thielhorn, Jessica Klima, and Chris Stewart, the team has scheduled 10 games that they will play. The HP sat down with Captains Reagan Jensen and Brenna Theisen to find out more about the season.

HP: What are your team’s strengths?

Jensen: “I would say that our team’s strengths this year especially are that we have good hustle and many of us have been playing together since we were little, so, as we get older, we’ve been able to grow together and get into a rhythm that’s crucial out on the field.”

Theisen: “I believe our strengths are our at bats. We have a lot of younger girls with a lot of experience who being good athleticism to the team.” [sic]

If someone was thinking about joining, what would you say to convince them to join the team?

Reagan: “If somebody was on the fence about joining softball, I’d tell them that they’re not going to regret joining because the team always has really great spirit and we work really well together. The team is really good at taking new girls because we get a lot of newbies every year, so there’s no pressure to join and there’s always room for more.”

 Brenna: “It’s a short season and you only get to try something once! There are is bunch of girls who love to help and teach and I guarantee you’ll have fun. If you don’t like it, you don’t have to do it but at least come try!”

The North Lakes Academy team has been practicing vigorously for their upcoming game. Their toughest games of the season will be against West Lutheran and Spectrum. If you want to watch these games, you can find the schedule here.
