    Pocomoke High School’s spring sports season begins in one short week. The Lady Warriors softball team has already begun preparing for their upcoming season in which they plan to come out strong and be a dominant team, but it’s going to take a lot of teamwork and dedication.

    Seniors, McKenzie Mitchell and Cristen Quillen, have been benched early this year due to injuries.

    “I am very upset about not being to play softball my senior year because it is one of my favorite sports,” says Mitchell.

    Mitchell still has a lot of faith that her team will be able to dominate on the field without her.

    Senior, Monique Snead, has plans of helping lead her team this season and push them to do their best on and off the field.

    “I think that it is going to be an interesting year because we are losing some of our top players, but I hope everyone still works hard,” says Snead.

    Quillen was the team’s starting pitcher and Mitchell was the team’s starting catcher. Losing the two of them will definitely be a setback for the Lady Warriors.

    The team has started working out together a few days a week to start getting in shape for the upcoming season.

    “I have been throwing the ball around and I plan on trying to do a few workouts to help prepare myself. I think that Coach Taylor doing a few workouts a week will really benefit them team,” Snead tells us.

    The team will begin practicing for the 2018 season on March 1st. There are about four incoming freshman that will be beneficial to the team. The Lady Warriors are determined to come out strong and to not give up when they are getting beat. Scores of games are not their focus this season, their goal is to improve as a team throughout the season.
