    Softball Tennessee Trip

    The Wauconda Girls Softball team goes on a yearly Tennessee trip and they played in the annual tournament while they were down there. They take the whole team consisting of 13 players, both managers and coaches. The girls go down in buses on a long 11 hour drive to Murfreesboro, Tennessee. They cozy up with blankets and pillows so the ride is a little bit more comfortable. The team stayed in hotels on Saturday-Monday and was supposed to have 5 games but only had 4 since it got rained out. They got to go into Nashville and explore the city. Some of the activities they did there: Ax throwing, Bbq dinners, walking through the city and meeting their families for more fun apart from the team.

    This trip for the Softball team can be exciting and a memorable experience. Keelin Barton, a player on the Wauconda High School Varsity Softball team loves the annual Tennessee trip. She tells us “I like being able to bond as a team.” Whether you’re a player participating in the competition or a spectator cheering on your team, the atmosphere of the game is fun. They explored the local attractions and delicious Southern foods in between games to fully enjoy their time there. Tennessee is known for its beautiful landscape and vibrant culture.  The trip is a great way to showcase their skills, bond with teammates and experience new places. Softball gave these girls a unique opportunity to not only compete but also to explore new surroundings and create lasting memories. Traveling together, staying in hotels, and spending time off the field allows players to develop stronger friendships. This means more trust and teamwork, which can help fuel success on the field. The Tennessee trip gives the players an opportunity to grow, connect and explore.
