Megan Fultz said she’s been playing softball since she was 13, and the junior center fielder/pitcher for Catoosa also said she’s had to work hard to get to where she is.
“When I started playing, I wasn’t the best player on the field,” Fultz said. “And I was told that I would need to work super hard to earn a spot on the field. This simple statement is what drove me to become the player I am today and to fall in the love with softball. I love playing this sport because of the challenge it always brings along with all of the life lessons that it has taught me.”
Fultz said the Lady Indians’ season has not been great so far, but she’s remaining positive and confident things will start to turn around.
“This season has been a little rough if I’m being completely honest,” she said. “Having lost five starting players after graduating last year and getting a new coach the week before the start of practices, set us behind a little bit. We started as essentially a brand new team. After the start of the regular season, we had another setback. We were out for three to four weeks because of various Covid-19 cases throughout the team. We’ve only been back to playing within the last two weeks and our record is 2-15. Although it is not the greatest record it doesn’t reflect all of our hard work and the progress we have made since day one. As with any team we have our ups and downs.”
In her free time, Fultz said she enjoys reading and taking pictures at her brother’s baseball games. She said she also enjoys hunting, sleeping, and spending time with friends and family.
