Athlete of the Week: Senior Kylie Walters, Softball

According to coaches Dave Sallett and Bob Cohen, “Kylie has been a Varsity softball player for four years. She played shortstop and second base and, for the last two years, has been the starting third baseman. Her nickname is “the cat,” because of the way she pounces on bunts and fires the ball to our first baseman. She can make all the plays on defense and consistently hits the ball hard, striking out only twice all year. She is a team captain providing thoughtful leadership to the members of the team. She also shows leadership as Editor in Chief of the Lions Roar. Kylie is an athlete with brains, sensitivity, strength of character, a great sense of humor, and tremendous leadership skills. The varsity softball team has been the beneficiary of Kylie’s personality and softball skills for four wonderful years. Thank you, Kylie. We’re going to miss you!”
