GIRARD OH- The Girard Softball team has been steadily on the rise over the years. For the first time in a while, the Indians were prepared to field a JV team along with a varsity. Senior Sidney Durkin has a lot to do with the program’s growth. She’s set the running pace for Girard softball. She was all set for senior year until COVID-19 put an end to the 2020 season.
Girard was going to field a fairly young team this season. But with that youth cane plenty of talent. They were poised to make some noise in the NE8. Sidney’s job was to rope in the younger girls, and show them the standards and expectation of Indians softball. Those standards have been inside Sidney for quite some time, as she gets coached by her own father. She says softball has done nothing but strengthen their relationship on and off the field.
Sidney is looking to go into the Criminal Justice field in the future. She says this passion for the pathway actually came from bonding with her mother over cop shows at an early age. She has consistently taken civics classes to get a grasp on the inner workings of the American legal system.
Anthony Hartwig had the opportunity to talk with Sidney via video conference. They discuss being a senior on a young team, getting coached by her dad, and much more. Don’t miss your chance to learn about this Girard softball senior in the latest Player Profile “Girard Runs On Durkin.”
