Asbury Senior Abby Fletcher
“… I am so thankful to have had the opportunity to play Lawrence County Softball. Kenny Horn has built a program that feels more like family, and I loved being a part of it. Kenny has had a great impact on my life, and I know that I would not be at Asbury without him.”
“… Playing softball at Asbury has been an extension of LC Softball. It has been such a blessing to me to play for two Christ-centered programs that have challenged me to grow both as a player and as a person.”
“… I am so appreciative of being selected for the Frank and Lucille Fryman Award, but I know that any of my other teammates are equally deserving. Our coach, Megan Curry, emphasizes the importance of selfless service in leadership, and she and my teammates demonstrate that daily.”
“… Both programs have loved me and taken care of me more than I could ever ask. The Lord has blessed me with two softball families that point me towards Him, and I am grateful.”
