regina’s gabby rocha earns prestigious softball honor
in a time devoid of many positive results — or any games at all — gabby rocha still found a way to win.
on march 17, the regina junior was invited to attend the softball youth all-american games. rocha is scheduled to travel to kentucky at the end of july to participate.
it was a seminal moment for the pitcher and center fielder. the honor symbolized her work and growth to this point.
most importantly, it’s another chance for rocha to do what she loves to do most: play softball.
“i was home when i found out,” rocha said. “when i saw (the invitation) i was just like, ‘oh my gosh, there’s no way.’
