On Saturday, March 10, 2018, Midlothian High School held its second annual softball clinic. From 9 am to 12 pm, varsity and JV players taught basic skills and mechanics to four young players to improve their softball abilities. From hitting to working on both the infield and the outfield skills, the Midlothian players and the campers worked hard and later left with a sense of accomplishment. 

After talking about the warm ups with the players and the coaches, the participants went straight into a few quick laps around the bases. Immediately after, all of the players and campers began the routine dynamic and static stretching to prevent injuries throughout the day. The group then split, and each camper paired up with a varsity player to warm up their arms. After players felt warmed up and ready to go, they went into the infield to get some defense work in. Throughout the day, the Midlo players gave the girls tips and helped them with new skills that they will be able to use in the future.

Although the weather was miserably cold, the campers and Midlothian players made the best of their time spent together. Sophomore and JV player Kelsey Seiler commented that “[she] thought the camp helped the kids grow and mature as players”. Once again, Midlo pulled off a successful softball clinic and will hopefully continue to throughout the coming years.
