Kariss Whitford

Kariss Whitford, a student attending Orcutt Academy High School, used to play softball for the school team. Since the pandemic started, there haven’t been many opportunities to play. Practices will probably start again soon taking all the necessary precautions to keep athletes safe. 

 

Kariss has been playing softball for a few years and is proud of how far she’s come. Her position on the team is pitcher, they usually throw the balls to the batters.

 

Any athlete can have some trouble finding motivation. Kariss relies on her friends to help encourage her before each game. They are one of the main reasons Whitford keeps trying hard.
