Struthers High School softball team played Chaney May 3rd at home for their senior night.

This was the last regular home game for the 2024 season and last ever time playing on their home field for the seniors.

The team, parents, faculty and fans got together to host a senior night for the softball team’s seniors. The rest of the team got together to decorate the dugouts and make everything super special for the seniors Emma Morris, Ava Hall, Lexa Tovtin and Morgan Minno. Struthers took the win with the score ending 12-2. The  whole team had incredible plays, and everyone hit the ball really well, including an out of the park home run from our own senior Morgan Minno.

While the whole night was a hit, there were some moments that stood out more than others.

“Reading all the letters from our teammates is by far the best part. It reminds me about all the fun we’ve had over the past season and how much I’m going to miss playing with some of the girls,” says Morris.

The overall energy of the game was something to experience. The dugout has never been louder with fans and teammates cheering for each other. Also the walk-up songs lifted everyone’s spirits throughout the game, especially since the team played random silly songs for the seniors when they were up to bat.

The seniors have a lot of experience and advice to give to upcoming players.

“Do not take anything for granted. Your time in high school goes by so fast, so live in the moment and give it your all, cause by the time you know it it will all be over. Cherish those friendships you make, and make the most out of it,” says Minno.

While the softball season is coming to an end, it’s not completely over. The girls have the tournament left to compete in. They will play Jefferson first, and if they win they will move on in the bracket.

But it’s not just about the competition, it’s about the bonds that make it worth playing.

“My favorite part of softball in high school was being able to play with my sister for the past three years. We’ve played softball together since we were around six years old. I’m going to miss not having the privilege of playing with her next year,” says Morris.
