Trying to gauge the start of softball season in Johnson County can be like trying to anticipate when the first drop of Heinz ketchup will fall from a glass bottle. Nobody knows exactly the time but it’s great when it does.
The Lady Longhorns are anticipating greatness from standout senior pitcher, Brianna Snyder. The Milligan College signee spent her entire summer and fall playing travel ball and now she’s ready to carry the bulk of the burden for Johnson County.
“Everybody is excited about this season but we’re also getting very impatient,” said Snyder. ”We’ve only been on the field twice so that has set us back a bit. We have hit in the tunnel and off the tee almost every day so we’ve not had idle time. Hopefully we will get some good weather. We need to get outside for a week or two.”
Snyder likes the makeup of this year’s Longhorns. She stated her reasons.
“We have more of togetherness on this squad and nearly all of us are best of friends,” added Snyder. “We all support one another. We have quite a few returning starters but we’re young in our pitching staff other than me. I’m expecting to pitch more than I did last season and I’m up for the challenge.”
Snyder has already signed with Milligan. She feels like that is a huge monkey off her back.
