Coach Austin Mayo chose Bree Dunckhorst for Student-Athlete of the Week for her dedication to softball.

“Bree took the circle and absolutely performed in a big game for us this past weekend,” said coach Mayo

“She pitched very well, hitting her spots and trusting her defense to make plays behind her on her way to a one-hit, complete game shutout,” said coach Mayo

Some people don’t find comfort or relationships in the sport they play but for Dunckhorst its family.

“I love the game of softball more than anything in this world and how it makes me feel supported, not only by my teammates but by coaches, my family, and all the softball parents that come to watch us,” said Dunckhorst. “Our team and coaches have a family bond (we have even started to call coach peters our mom) and we have all grown up together.”

Softball also teaches important life skills such as perseverance, teamwork, and sportsmanship.
