Lincoln High School softball’s Haleigh Ferris had a heck of a weekend, and we are naming her Honda Athlete of the Week.
Ferris was the key in Lincoln’s game against Bridgeport, hitting a three-run homer and then a game tying hit late to give the Cougars the win. She is one of the reasons that the Cougars had won seven straight games going into their sectional playoff game.
Ferris has even taken on a leadership role, and it certainly seems to be working.
“Whenever they get down after a mistake, I try to tell them to forget it. [I] try to tell them to just stay positive and that we can win this if we just keep our heads up and work together as a team,” Ferris said.
Congratulations Haleigh Ferris on being named Honda Athlete of the Week.
