Bria Jamison is a junior and a member of the varsity softball team.

This is Jamison’s second year being apart of the varsity team, but her 12th year of softball overall. Jamison’s love for the sport inspires her to play to her full potential and give the crowd the show they asked for.

“The first catch I had as a varsity player just made my face grow into a smile,” said Jamison. “I was so ecstatic and I knew both my coaches and teammates were proud of me,” Jamison said, “Not to mention I couldn’t hear anything over their cheers as I threw it back to our second baseman” Jamison added.

Although this is Jamison’s second year on the varsity team there is no doubt that she is full of talent. Jamison has been playing softball ever since t-ball; she fell in love with the sport at a young age and her continuous love for it has yet to stop.

“My favorite thing I get from the game is the adrenaline rush, I just love the intensity of the game,” said Jamison. “I am really looking forward playing Mapletown because if we win we will be 2nd in our section and it would make my dad so proud. He is my inspiration in everything especially softball, so I am praying we accomplish that,” added Jamison. “He has always pushed me to do my best and is one of the main reasons I can bunt so well.”

Jamison focuses on not making mistakes and always looks at her strengths. Her coaches are always lending a helping hand during practice.

“I would say my biggest strengths are that I am very good at bunting and that I can throw really far so that helps shape me into the outfielder I am” said Jamison. “Although I am a great outfielder sometime I get too nervous when I bat and then I psych myself out,” added Jamison. “My coaches are intense and help me grow stronger every day.”

Teammates are always play an important part during games and Jamison is very thankful that she came into such a great team.

“They’re always laughing and making the bus rides such a joyful thing,” Jamison said. “I couldn’t ask for a better team, they support me, scream and cheer for me, teach me new things, and have just became such an amazing part of my life,” added Jamison. “I am dreading the last game especially because we are losing such amazing seniors such as my best friend and cousin Brynn Boyd.”

The lady rockets are having an amazing season and can’t wait to see what the future has in store for them.
