LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — The Faith Christian Eagles have struggled in recent years, but head coach Rochy Argo was hoping this senior class would change that momentum. The Eagles’ 2020 roster featured three seniors.
Kaycee Baird started at catcher for the Eagles, spending time on first and second base as well. Baird is planning on attending Purdue in the fall. She will become a member of the Purdue Honors College and study Biomechanical Engineering.
Emily Galbreth played at the corners and filled in as a pitcher. She's headed to Muncie to study Nursing at Ball State.
Maria Smith played all over the field as a utility player. Smith will attend Cedarville University in Ohio this fall to study Mechanical Engineering.
Coach Argo said these three helped the team in more ways than you might think.
“These three seniors were the only three on my team that had a driver's license. We don't have buses at Faith so when we had morning practices at six o'clock... at around seven o'clock they would be making the Starbucks run,” said Argo this week.
Argo spoke highly of his senior bunch. He claims that this year’s senior group was more than just a group of leaders.
“We can talk about leadership all we want, but being a servant...that's where it really matters,” said Argo.
