Bright future ahead for Fulton softball team

by Rob Tetro

The Fulton varsity softball team is losing oen senior from a team that went 11-7. The team reached the semifinals of the Section III Class A playoffs.

Ashley Cummins is the lone senior that Fulton will bid farewell to, according to coach Derek Lyons. Throughout the season, Cummins displayed an impressive work ethic, said Lyons.

Though she may not have been a vocal leader, Cummins led by example when it came to effort.

Lyons added that Cummins’ teammates learned a lot from her. “I think the girls learned a lot about the way she worked day in and day out,” he said.

Whether its Cummins or any other senior that makes her way through the program, Lyons hopes that seniors come away from the experience with the understanding that having an impressive work ethic can pay off.

It certainly did this season. “We had a nice run this year and it would (not) have been impossible without the effort they put in all year,” said Lyons.

The Lady Raiders improved this season. Despite playing a few perennial powerhouses, Fulton had a pretty successful season.
