But more than anything, Bradshaw was just happy to be playing softball for a couple of hours and to have to think about the devastation her city has gone though and the long recovery ahead.
“I was stressed out,” Bradshaw said. “I was very overwhelmed. I had a lot of friends who lost family members and houses. I hurt for them because I can’t imagine what that’s like. This gets my mind off everything that has been going on.”
Both Peace and Bradshaw still have one more game left before their high school careers are done. They will be competing Saturday in the All-State Slow pitch game at Marita Hynes Field.
“Next weekend it will hit me,” said peace, who has singed with Arkansas Tech. “I think I will have fun. I had hoped I get it when I was freshman, once I learned what it was. But I learned it was just for seniors. So I said I was going to get all-state my senior year, and I did.”
