As the old saying goes, “There is no ‘I’ in ‘TEAM.”
The Cannon School softball team takes this phrase to heart, as the Cougars’ focus is solely on the team and not individuals.
As the Cougars gear up for the N.C. Independent Schools Athletic Association 4A championship series today and Saturday, they are hoping to bring home the title through a shared belief in what they can do as a unit.
An example of this came from junior pitcher Sidney Rose Tuesday evening, when she helped her team to a win over North Raleigh Christian Academy in the semifinals.
Despite performing well both as a pitcher and a batter, striking out eight Knight batters while posting two hits and three runs batted in at the plate, she gave all the credit for the victory to her teammates.
“I could not have (performed well) without my team’s defense behind me,” Rose said. “It wasn’t just me; it was them, too.”
