The Meade County High School Ladywave Softball team recognized their three departing seniors in a ceremony prior to their game on May 3 on the Elaina Dix Field at Meade Olin Park. The coaches and staff took this time to thank the players and family members for their dedication to the team and all their hard work they have put in while a member of the Ladywave Softball Family.
First baseman Mercedes Gossage, daughter of Cassie and Donnie Gossage has been a member of the Ladywave Softball team for the last three years, the National Honors Society the last two years and will be attending Bellarmine University in the fall to major in exercise science and criminal justice. She would like to thank all her family for always pushing her to be the best she could be and to her coaches for never giving up on her and helping her to become a better ball player. Her fondest memory is beating Greenwood on the Penny Reece Field in Bowling Green. She also would like the rest of the team to not let the time you have now get away from you. Play every game as if it were your last.
Starting Pitcher Mary Morgan, daughter of Kathy and Danny Morgan, has been a member of the Ladywave softball team for the last six years and will attend Kentucky Wesleyan Collage after graduation, where she will pursue a degree in elementary school education while playing softball for the Lady Panthers. She would like to thank her mother and father for showing up to every game, investing so much time and money into making her the best player she could be. Also, for washing her uniforms, driving her everywhere and for showing her that a little bit of hard work will go a long way if you want it bad enough. A special thanks to Coach Reece for the opportunity to play under her and for teaching her nothing worth having comes easy. Mary’s fondest memory while a Ladywave is when she hit a Homerun and beat Greenwood on Penny Reece Field in Bowling Green, and finally to her teammates, have fun, play hard because it all goes by so quickly.
Third basemen Makayla Bloomfield, daughter of Christy and Dustin Bloomfield has been a member of the Ladywave Softball team for the last six years and is also a member of the Pep Club, SADD, FCA, and HOSA. Makayla will be attending WKU after graduation where she will pursue a degree in Nursing. She would like to thank her parents for pushing her to be a better ball player and will always cherish the long drives to tournaments and the endless jam sessions in the car, and a special thank you to her sister Emma for always being her biggest cheerleader. To all her coaches along the way, thank you for pushing her to be the player she is today, and for teaching her to believe in herself. Her fondest memory is when the team won against Greenwood on the Penny Reece Field in Bowling Green. To her team, play each game as if its your last, because it will all come to an end sooner than you think.
