The Lookout Staff Writer Brodee Gillam recently spoke with LCC sophomore softball catcher Sara Reinhardt. The Unionville-Sebewaing High School graduate leads the Stars in stolen bases this season.
What made you want to play softball?
"I started at a really young age. I was 5 years old when I started. I did coach-pitch all the way up to varsity softball and then I committed to LCC. It's always what I wanted to do since I was a little girl. Me and my sisters have always played. I kind of looked up to my older sister when she was playing."
What made you choose LCC's program?
"The winning. It's a really good program so I was like, 'That's where I want to go.' I didn't want to go for four years. So I was like, 'Two years is good for me.' It's a really good program."
What are you excited about for the rest of the year?
"I'm excited for the rest of the season, obviously. But also, (the) post season. I'm really excited for that because I think we have a really good chance to get back to states, districts, regionals and nationals."
As a sophomore, what did you want to bring back to the team this year?
"I think I wanted to bring back the sisterhood that we had last year, and the closeness that we had. We struggled a little bit, but I think we're back on the same page and we're starting to get (that sisterhood)."
Do you have any role models?
"My parents contribute to a lot of it. Just the fact that they go out of their way to take off work to come watch me play. My coaches; all of my coaches from all 18 years of me playing."
What are your plans, academically, after LCC?
"I am actually going to stay at LCC and pursue the nursing program."
