Why You Chose CMS Softball: The team has an energy that is captivating and it is practically impossible to not be drawn into it. The girls are all well-rounded individuals who all share the same love for the game. The coaches are always open, genuine, and show an interest in our development not only as players, but also as individuals. It is safe to say that everyone has talent, but what is more important than this is that everyone works hard and has a will to not only improve themselves as individuals but better the team as well.

A Couple Favorite Quotes: “Every day may not be good, but there’s something good in every day.”

“If you love what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life.”

“It’s those daily victories that propel us towards our goal and reinforce what we are all here for.”

"When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us."

– Helen Keller
