Athlete of the Week

Ashlee Thatcher

1. What has been the best part about your senior year playing baseball?
The best part was seeing how good the team could actually play when we had fun.2. Do you hope to continue playing somewhere?
I hope to continue playing somewhere, whether it’s competitive or not, I don’t care.

3. What are your plans after leaving LU?
Find a job, get married, play baseball!

4. If you could hit anything with a bat, what would it be and why?
There’s nothing like that feeling of hitting a baseball as far as you can, so I’d continue hitting those baseballs.

5. How has a new coach helped change your attitude about baseball?
Coach Barthelmess has helped me realize that the less I do, physically and mentally, when I’m playing, the more I can produce and help the team. If I try hard to do something, I’ll screw up, but if I just let things happen, I can do great things.
