BONNERS FERRY — Badger softball paid tribute to its four graduating seniors, honoring them at Senior Night on April 29.

Rose Owens wears jersey No. 2 and plays outfield. Her sports and hobbies include, soccer, yearbook, hanging with the homies and napping. Her plans after high school is to attend the University of Idaho to pursue a degree in journalism.

She said her favorite softball memory was going to state and “hanging with the homies.” Going to state was also the accomplishment she is most proud of.

Charley Anne Pruitt wears jersey No. 3 and plays every position, but mainly short stop.

Other sports and hobbies she enjoys are hunting, fishing, volleyball and spending time with friends.

Her plan after high school is going to the workforce. Her favorite memories of softball are her huge pants freshman year, going to state during her junior year, “hanging with the homies” and when Kassy [Skeen] slid into second base and broke her foot.

The accomplishment she is most proud of was receiving the Best Offensive Player of the Year Award during her freshman year.

Her advice to future players is, work hard and don’t disrespect head coach Kassy Skeen.

Marisa Shottanana-Ponce wears jersey No. 8 and plays right outfielder and catcher. Other sports and hobbies she enjoys are soccer, napping, procrastinating and being silly.

She said her favorite memories of softball “were bus rides with my homies.” The accomplishment she is most proud of is understanding the game when she’s never played before.

Her advice to future players is learn how to lose; and just have fun.

Maggie Bateman wears jersey No. 9 and plays outfield.

“I enjoy playing the piano, boating, wakeboarding, tubing, knee boarding, shopping and spending time with friends and family,” she said.

After high school, her plans include moving to Utah for work and living with her sister. Then she plans to move to Rexburg for college at Brigham Young University.

Her favorite softball memory was how new and exciting the sport was.

“This season is something I’ll always remember,” she said. “I’m most proud that I decided to put myself out there and play a sport.”

Her advice to future players is work hard and always be supportive to teammates and coaches.

“The attitude and mentality towards a game makes all the difference,” Bateman said.
