This pre-season was especially successful as I saw the most growth within myself as a player. In my fourth year I have finally begun to refine my technique and skills such as the way I grip and handle the bat when I’m batting.
LO7 – To our dismay, this year’s SEASAC Softball was cancelled for the second year in a row. Although the team and myself were incredibly upset at the fact that we had trained very hard all pre-season (and woken up at 6am for continuous weeks), we quickly realised that the decision to stop SEASAC and other international trips was necessary in mitigating the effects of the Coronavirus. This event has truly put my life into perspective as I have been left to think about the fact that the very privileged difficulties and ‘hardships’ that I endure often become inflated in significance in my head. Although I do not get to attend SEASAC, there are others that are losing family members to this epidemic.
