Kayhi Lady Kings Softball start their season off this weekend in Sitka.
They are scheduled to play Thunder Mountain, Juneau Douglas, and Sitka. This will be their first time playing as a team since 2019.
Senior Dyllan Borer said there will be a lot of safety precautions being used during play.
“Our hitters, runners, first basemen, and catchers will all be required to wear masks along with all the umps,” Borer said.
A lot of teams in the state will require their players to wear masks. Besides the positions with close contact, Kayhi will not be mandating their players to wear them.
“Our team isn’t required to wear masks on the field, but if the other team does we will too,” said Borer.
With the outbreak suspending their 2020 season, there are a lot of new faces in the program.
Borer can’t wait to lace up her cleats and play with a new group of girls.
“I am super excited to get on the field, it is going to be a little different with not playing with a lot of these girls yet but I am excited,” said Borer.
With the team they have, Borer is liking their chances this year.
“We have an opportunity to be great,” said Borer.
