Watching seniors in last home game was tough

By Jessica Shults

Last weekend was probably one of the hardest weekends this season by far. We battled hard against Texas for three straight games. Not getting the final result we wanted in the game on Sunday really stung, but watching our seniors (Allee Allen, Kirsten Allen, Katie Norris) play their last home game was really emotional.

I’ve been with this group of seniors three years now, and they are honestly like my family. All three of them bring something different to the table, and I’m so grateful that I have gotten the opportunity to know each one of them.

Although Senior Day was emotional, the journey is not over. I am so excited to finish our Big 12 schedule this week against Iowa State. This week has been a little different at practice trying to work around everyone’s final schedules, but now that finals are finally over, it’s nice to be able to take a deep breath and just focus on softball.
