VYPE: Who are some of your biggest influences or role models?

MB: One of my biggest role models in the game is my coach, Heather Bunn. She came into Hugo and has already created a bigger system for us than any other coach has. Her drive and the dedication she has for me is unmatched, she’ll be the reason I get to play college ball one day.

VYPE: What has it taken to be successful in your sports?

MB: To be successful in my career, it’s taken a lot of hard work and drive. Not giving up or letting coaches ruin your love for the game and trying to become better day by day.

VYPE: What are your plans after high school?

MB: My plans after high school are to attended college for a softball scholarship and become an elementary teacher, mainly specializing in special education.

VYPE: What does it mean to you to represent your school and community when you play?
