Currently a new recruit to the Lewis-Palmer High School Softball team, Hannah Toussaint, 19,  is playing left field and second base on the JV/Varsity teams. She plans on playing this throughout her four years at Lewis-Palmer. Toussaint has set goals for her softball year as she wants to earn an athletic letter.

“It would mean a lot to my parents being the first Toussaint to play varsity and earn a letter in softball,” Toussaint says.

She comes from a baseball & softball family so it was always in her blood to play softball. Even though it is her first time joining a team, she has experience playing from past scrimmages. She has been thinking of playing softball for as long as she can remember. Toussaint recently watched a college softball game over the summer, which helped spark her idea to play for the high school.

At this point in the season, she has confidence in her skills. Although she knows she is not as adept as those who’ve been playing longer. She is striving to train and push herself harder to become the best she can be.

“My favorite part about softball is hitting because of the joy, the happiness and adrenaline I get when I get someone home and when I get to run from base to base,“Toussaint said.  “When I play softball, it’s like that feeling where you’re on top of the world and you can do anything, except for when I strikeout because the coach will get mad at me.”
