Softball Leaves Their Mark On The Field

Cypress softball maintains their winning streak by working together as a team.,

The Cypress varsity softball team has a record of 7-6 this season, even though they had a recent loss against Los Alamitos High School, losing 1-9 on March 12, 2024.  They also had an incredible victory on March 5, 2024 against Sunny Hills High School with a score of 13-4. Their victories don’t come easy; they have to constantly work hard together as a team to win each game. 

Many of the girls thank their families and coaches for the way they push them to strive for greatness. They also recall the support they have given to them even at such a young age. Head coach, Terry Thompson, and assistant coaches, Kevin Dull and Kristen Baker have been the ones to lead the softball teams to victory and will go on to have an amazing season thanks to their great coaching skills. They will need to work hard to beat their biggest opponent this season, Pacifica High School, which is currently ranked number one in the United States. “I think if we play well, we are capable of beating any other team,” said Dull

Even though family support is very important in an athlete’s career, it is just as important to have a great connection with their teammates. Without great teamwork, the magic on the field would not be possible. Delaney Faus, junior, advises younger players to “always work hard, always have fun and always be a good team” in order to be successful even if the game isn’t always easy to play. For these girls, relying on each other is a crucial part of playing the game because without doing so they wouldn’t be the great team they are today. 

As the Cypress varsity softball team continues its season, it is evident that their success is not just a result of individual talent but of the strong bonds forged within the team. Even though the pressure will only increase, it is important to remember that the love of the game should always come first.  “As we get older, although the stress and ambition becomes greater, it shouldn’t stand in the way of the love for the game,” said sophomore Kiyoko Saunders

“Don’t worry about what others think of you, dare to be great,” advised freshman Genevieve Gonzales.
