She was amazing, she did everything she could for the team. Macy Fisch did a good job behind the wheel and Amiya Smallwood did a good job managing the bases and enjoying. Experience helps this team, but their mental toughness is also essential. They depend on each other. Maddie McKay for New Sharon is a good pitcher. She does a good job in the circle. So we have to keep our heads down and hit the ball.
