Every athlete has at least one memorable moment during their career. It can be a personal achievement, a team achievement, or something that happened that made an impact on them. Abbie Hart says that her best memory from her softball career took place last season.

“We were playing Okeene during my junior season,” she Hart recalled. “The bases were loaded and I was up to bat. I hit the ball perfectly for a grand slam. Definitely one of my best memories.”

Abbie is a senior at Thomas-Fay-Custer Unified Schools. Along with playing fastpitch and slowpitch softball, she also is a member of the Lady Terrier’s basketball team, runs track, and is a trainer for the football team.

Softball is the game that Hart considers to be her favorite. “I play the game just because of my love for it,” she said. “There’s something different once you walk on the field that you can’t duplicate in any other part of life.”

There have been a few people that have made big impacts on Abbie’s life, helping her become the athlete and person that she is today. “Laci Friesen has taught me to push myself harder than anyone has before,” Hart said. “My brother, Matt Hart, has always been there for me when I need him. He has really stepped up since my dad passed away four months ago and I really appreciate him.”

In the classroom, Hart has had a number of teachers that she has enjoyed, but one stands out as her favorite. “I really like Mrs. Hightower,” she said. “She has taught me to just let things go and they will eventually get better.”

Even though Abbie plays a variety of sports, they all share a common bond in order to be successful. “You have to put in a lot of hard work and dedication,” she stated. “For softball, there is hitting in the cages every day and putting full effort in both on and off the field.”

Along with her athletics, Abbie is also a member of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Family, Career and Community Leaders of America, the Student Council, and she also serves as senior class treasurer.
