Imagine that you have played your entire varsity-level high school softball career with the same core group of girls. Over the past six years, you have grown together as a team and a softball family, celebrating the highs and dealing with the lows together.
Then, the next year, everyone is gone. They have graduated, and you are the lone senior left on a team of inexperienced underclassmen and middle schoolers, attempting to compete on the varsity level.
How do you respond?
