Cadott left to wonder the ‘what might have beens’
“I am going to miss what could have been.”
The words from Cadott softball coach Kari Moldrem say it all, in regard to the sports season that never happened. Cadott was poised to have a great season this year, but after the spring sports period was canceled by the WIAA amid concerns of the COVID-19 health emergency, those hopes were dashed.
“From where we left off at the end of last season, to where we could have gone this year, it hurts to know we missed an opportunity to raise the bar for Cadott softball,” said Moldrem. “The biggest thing that makes me sad about this whole situation, is the connections and memories with each other that my players are missing out on. Getting better at playing a sport is great, but ask anyone who has played a team sport – it’s the memories of their teammates that stay with them.”
Moldrem says she believes the Hornets would have competed, challenged and beaten any team in the conference this year.
“I believe, this year, we would have filled in some missing pieces and I believe teammates would have really pushed each other,” she said.
It’s also hard to let go of this season, as Cadott bids adieu to seniors Brooke Bremness, McKenzie Ryan, Jennifer Sonnentag and Liz Steffes. Unfortunately for the senior girls, the season never got underway and their high school careers are now but a memory.
“To the seniors, I am truly sorry for all they will miss out on,” said Moldrem. “I hope they can make the best of this unfortunate situation and remember the fun times that we already have had.”
