What has your coach told you to expect this time around?

“Don't take anything for granted.”

Moore has three 6A schools in the softball tournament. What do you think about the school district's programs?

“I think it's a good thing to have Moore have three teams being represented. I think it says something's coming from this side of town. I'm glad that we can compete actually against each other.”

What should people know about playing for a state title?

“It's a single-elimination tournament so state is the biggest thing everybody competes for all year. That's a high school softball player's dream is to win state. It's a big thing for us. The pressure is really tough.”

What have your sisters told you about winning consecutive titles and what it takes?

“Hard work, dedication and believing in yourself and your team that you can come together as one to defend your title.”
