The Lookout Associate Editor/Photo Editor Kaitlyn Delaney recently spoke with LCC softball player Aliyah Holman. Currently a sophomore at LCC, Holman graduated from Zeeland East High School.

When did you start playing softball?
“I started playing softball I think when I was about 4 years old. My parents got me into it, so ever since then.”

What made you want to play softball growing up?
“Definitely my parents, they’re my biggest inspiration so they have always supported me. It’s something I was always interested in, so they put me in the sport.”

Do you have any moments from playing softball that stand out?
“Probably nationals last year; I really enjoyed that. It was like a big accomplishment for the team, so it was really enjoyable.”

Is there one piece of advice you’ve been given that sticks out with you?
“Just play confident, I mean that’s the best way you can play. So just playing confident and trusting yourself.”

Do you have any personal or team goals for the rest of the season?
“I think team goal is definitely going to nationals again. I know my coach mentioned this too, but going undefeated in the conference is one of my biggest goals for the team. And then for myself, I think just to do better than I did last year.”

Do you have any game-day routines?
“Not really. I say a quick prayer before the game, but other than that, not really.”

If you weren’t a softball player, what sport would you have played?
“Probably basketball. It’s like my second sport.”

What are your plans after LCC?
“I am going to attend Grand Valley, and then get my bachelor’s in education, and I’m going to major in speech and language.”
