Fort Campbell High School senior D'undria Averhart's softball career began at age 8 when her parents decided their children need to participate in a sport.
"I told her, 'OK, D'undria, you have to do something,'" said Sharon Averhart, the athlete's mother. "She tried cheering, she didn't like that. She tried basketball, she didn't like that. Softball was the last option. We got out to the field and she cried -every single week."
The first two years, Sharon had to force D'undria to sign up, but by the third year, she could not wait to play. B eginning in middle school, softball became a way for D'undria to find her place through all the moves the Family made with the Army, happily playing whatever position the coaches assigned her.
