It might be the beginning of the softball season, but it is an end for some. There are seven seniors on the team who have been playing for the majority of their lives, but their softball career ends in a short three months.

After the season, all of the seniors are going to go out into the real world and start the occupations they have worked for through their college courses.

Some of the seniors will be furthering their education, three seniors, Kelcie Bormann, Sara Scheffert and Tiffani Housh, will be continuing on to puruse their dreams of being teachers by student teaching next year. Alex Schmidt is looking to go to nursing school, and Jordan King is also furthering her education by accepting an internship next year.

“Hopefully I will be doing my Sports Management Internship with the Omaha Storm Chasers and graduating in December,” King said.

The other two seniors, Megan Hagemann, and Kaiti Williams, will be looking for jobs right away.

“I have already accepted a job working for Mutual of Omaha Norfolk division selling life insurance and being a financial advisor for next year,” Hagemann said.

Williams has also already accepted a position of employment at Siouxland National Bank in South Sioux City.

Through their time spent here, the seniors have all gained some great memories of their past years as a Wildcat.

“My favorite memory was helping Kelcie get her no-hitter against Bemidji State,” King said.

Schmidt reminisces on some of the funnier moments on the field.

“My favorite memory was when Kaiti slipped on home plate after her home run,” Schmidt said.

Although their time on the softball field is coming to an end, the memories will always be there.

“I love all my memories of trips and experiences with my teammates,” Williams said. “In ten years when I can’t remember any of the games I played, I will still remember my teammates and all the fun times we had.”
