Sydney Supple, a senior pitcher/first baseman at Oshkosh North High in Oshkosh, Wisconsin and a long-time member of the Beverly Bandits travel organization, has had quite the amazing softball career already as she enters her senior year of high school competition.
Sydney has been a great blogger for Extra Inning Softball as we’ve tracked her career that has included everything from winning a PGF Championship to being a 1st Team All-American, a two-time Gatorade Softball State Player of the Year, signing with her dream school, Northwestern, being one of top players in the 2019 Extra Elite 100 and, off the field, raising enough money to build a Field of Dreams softball complex in her hometown.
High school softball in Wisconsin starts later than most states—her first game is March 29th—but her feelings of being a senior and playing her last year of high school ball will strike a similar chord with many going through the same experiences…
Here are Syd’s thoughts of what it means to her…
That is not a title I take lightly. It is a title that came in the blink of an eye and represents a year of lasts—last practices, last games, and last moments playing for your school and city.
For me, I lived at the ball diamonds growing up and was a regular attendee to all of the high school games in my hometown.
I dreamed of playing in front of my family, friends, and all who would come to watch.
