Abigail Broadhurst ‘18 was a Varsity Softball captain for the 2017 softball season and is currently serving as captain again for her senior 2018 softball season. Broadhurst is an outstanding athlete in the LCA community; she serves as the Sports Prefect and Varsity Field Hockey captain. Broadhurst has been on the varsity team since eighth grade. At the age of seven she started playing softball and has loved it ever since. Broadhurst has played for a variety of club teams such as The Firebirds, The Northeast Heat, and The Rangers. Broadhurst typically pitches or plays first base, but she says “she can play anywhere.” She was awarded Eastern Independent League “All League” her freshman, sophomore, and junior years. I asked Broadhurst how the Varsity Softball team looks for the upcoming season, and she said, “We have a lot of new players on the team this year, but they’re all committed to working hard so I’m looking forward to a fun season.” Thanks for all you do for LCA athletics, Abby!
