Her favorite memory at Central took place during this past softball season. The practice got rained out, so as a team they convinced Coach Baxley to let them play war ball in the gym instead of running and conditioning. It was a blast playing war ball with the team, and she also thinks it was a great bonding experience for the team. Although it was something simple as war ball, it is a memory that she will cherish and never forget.
