The Lookout Associate Editor/Photo Editor Kaitlyn Delaney recently spoke with LCC softball star Jenna Morse. Currently a sophomore at LCC, Morse graduated from Bay City Central High School.

When did you start playing softball?
“I actually played baseball when I was 5 to 12, so I actually started playing softball when I was 10, (when) I started playing travel.”

What position do you play? What made you want to play that position?
“I’ve caught all my life, and I played the infield a little bit growing up. I don’t know, my brothers were a big role model. My brother caught, and my other brother played middle infield, so I think growing up I just kind of fell into it. And I kind of enjoy it because you get to be part of it all, being in the infield, you get the ball a lot.”

Do you have any moments from playing softball that stand out?
“Yeah, over the years, I would say my travel ball is one of my highlight moments. But last year, one of the best moments was winning regionals (with LCC), that was probably a core memory I’ll take on forever.”

Is there one piece of advice you’ve been given that sticks out with you?
“Growing up, my coaches always said just go out there and dominate. And we kind of say a saying here, I was always told, ‘You’re never better than anybody, but no one’s better than you, so just play with your head on your shoulders and just go out there and compete.’”

Do you have any personal or team goals for the rest of the season?
“I think as a team, I just want to see us succeed. We’ve been working so hard, and I just want to see it pay off, and get to nationals hopefully. Personally, I don’t really set personal goals, I’m just kind of here for the team. I just want to play with my teammates and carry it on and be successful as a team.”

Do you have any game-day routines?
“Well kind of. Before I get on the field I re-tie my shoes and I kind of do a lot of visualizing before the game. Like, visualizing mainly in the play, like taking that good swing on a ball, but other than that, no not really.”

If you weren’t a softball player, what sport would you have played?
“I probably would have played volleyball. I played volleyball and basketball, softball growing up, I did some track. But I think volleyball is pretty good in the back row.”

What are your plans after LCC?
“So about two months ago I committed to play at Saginaw Valley, so I’m moving back home to finish out my career playing at Saginaw Valley.”
