UMF salutes softball seniors

2 mins read

FARMINGTON – The University of Maine at Farmington salutes the softball seniors and 2020 graduates whose seasons were lost or cut short this spring in the wake of the coronavirus.

This is not the season you envisioned, nor the exit from collegiate softball that you deserve. While some of you may be able to return to the field next year, most of you will move on to the next chapter in life with an unfinished collegiate athletics career. Although that is an unsatisfying end, we hope you take comfort in the memories made and goals accomplished in seasons past. We know you will step forth and make the world better in an unprecedented time that can really use your strength, knowledge, and spirit.

Thank you for your effort and dedication to your school, your sport, and your team. We are with you. We ARE you.
