This spring’s edition of Voices of Bethlehem features Varsity Softball players Kaitlyn Rarick and Stephanie Konas, a junior and senior respectively.

Rarick has been a member of Head Coach Karen Gentile’s squad since the eighth grade and now, more than ever, she feels ready to assume a leadership role.

“I feel like now as a junior, it’s my job to be the supporter and help out the younger girls and make sure they’re comfortable,” said Rarick.

Konas recently made it official that she plans to take her game to the next level, furthering her academic and athletic career at Smith College in Massachusetts next fall. As excited as she is about the opportunity, she made sure to make it known that she’s fully concentrated on the Varsity year ahead and hasn’t forgotten some of the struggles the team endured just a season ago.

“To prove to ourselves that we’ve come so far, because it was a disappointing season last year, I think to beat Columbia would just solidify that the program is only going up from here,” said Konas.

Best of luck to Rarick, Konas, Coach Gentile and the entire Bethlehem Varsity Softball team in their upcoming season.
