As they welcome the 2022 season of Slow-pitch Softball, the coaches and the team are excited to announce that they greatly appreciate the help and support of the new athletic director Gary Riley and the new principal Anglea Avila. As a team they are working hard to achieve greatness this season, entering with new teammates and goals. The Lady Longhorns are excited to get back on the field and are ready to take on any challenge to get to the State Championship. As the legendary Babe Ruth once said, “Never let the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game!” This season they are at 14 players, 8 home games, and 9 away games. The Lady Longhorns play their next home game on April 7 at 4:30 at the Chisholm softball field. The Lady Longhorns would love for anyone and everyone to come out and support them. The next home game will be April 11 at 4:30 against Blackwell.
In the past year, the Lady Longhorns were district champions and regional finalists with a record of 25-12. Anticipating that the Lady Longhorns will win another championship for the year 2022, Coach Burns and Coach Jimmy Johnson have been working hard with these ladies to bring them success. Not only have the coaches seen many talented players during the years, their dedication to Chisholm High School Softball has made an impact not only on the school but also on the players! Coach Burns always says, “It’s not all about winning, but about having fun as a team and playing as a family.”
They are excited for this season and they would love for everyone to come and support them! 4 bases, 3 strikes, 2 Teams, 1 Winner! GO LADY LONGHORNS!
