“They are good swingers,” Lemon said.
Senior Night is always an emotional experience, but this year was different with it being Lemon’s final year coaching. The team commemorated Lemon with a sign shaped as a softball honoring his experience since 1991. During the pregame ceremonies, seniors’ Allexis Lemon, Hawthorne and shortstop Ashlee Hayes were honored.
“This group of seniors has been with me for four years,” Lemon said. “They are hard workers, they come down here and they spend the time to make themselves better. I know it’s my last year, but you still hate to lose them. It’s not our last game, but still they’re seniors and the last game is really hard on you. Tonight I had a lot of my old players here, and I didn’t know that stuff was going to happen. It was nice just to see the kids, and some of them couldn’t make it. It was just a big win for us.”
