Q&A with Olivia Hill, Red Bay senior right-fielder

Q: How old were you when you started playing softball?

A: I started playing in Dixie Youth, so about 6 years old.

Q: Was there anyone special in your life that helped you become a great player?

A: We used to have a coach we called Ed. He helped me a lot.

Q: How do you get ready for a game?

A: I just hang out with my softball team and braid hair before a game.

Q: What do you like to do when you are not involved with softball?

A: I like to hang out with my other friends who don’t play softball.

Q: What factors do you feel have influenced you the most to become the player and person you are today?

A: Just having a team that was there for you on and off the field.

Q: Did you have any routines or superstitions before or in a game?

A: I don’t personally.

Q: What is your favorite softball memory?

A: In junior high I got to pitch one inning, and it was the most nerve-racking yet exciting experience I’ve ever had in softball.

Q: What softball player has influenced you most in the game? Why?

A: Probably all the seniors when I played junior high because they were really supportive and made sure everyone felt like part of the team.

Q: What is the greatest obstacle you have had to overcome in your playing career?

A: My greatest obstacle is working and playing softball. It’s a hard balance to find when you have rescheduled games and surprise practices and work and keep your grades up.

Q: What is life after being a softball player for you?

A: For me it will be work and lots of college stuff.

Q: What are your thoughts on your season and career coming to an abrupt end?

A: It was good, and I don’t regret joining the team again. I just wish I had more time to spend with my teammates.
