Milford High School varsity softball sophomore Kylie Nelson, a major hit last year by making second-team All-Henlopen Conference, has set the bar high and plans to achieve all set personal goals for this season.
“This year I just want to work hard and be a leader,” said Nelson, who plays first base. “I hope to help the underclassmen improve on their skills.” says Nelson.
“Kylie is an exceptional student athlete who excels in making everyone else around her better,” said MHS head coach Sean Brennan.
Nelson lets her efforts and hark work speak for itself. She not only performs well in the games, but she practices hard to improve, according to her teammates.
“Kylie is very hard working and dedicated,” said fellow sophomore Alli Sanders.
The Bucs plan to work as a unit and make it to the state tournament. With a corps of returning players and a few freshmen additions, the Bucs see little preventing them from a state championship.
“We are working very hard this year,” said Coach Brennan. “Our goal every day is to get one percent better and create a masterpiece.”
Seniors Savannah Becker and Alyssa Sanders and sophomore Kate Richard look to return to spark the team’s success as they officially open their season 4 p.m. March 22 at Laurel.
