Although high school sports have been ruined by the COVIS-19 pandemic, the O-N-E will continue its ‘Senior Focus’ series.

The athletes involved were given a ‘Senior Night’ type questionnaire to answer, and these are their responses.

We continue our series with Bunker Hill softball player Kylee Houser.

Houser - an outfielder for the Lady Bears varsity club - collected four hits in 11 plate appearance in 2020, including a double in the win over Northwest Guilford on March 11.

Houser’s best game at-bat this season was in the season opener against East Rutherford on March 5 as she finished 2-for-2 with one run scored, two RBIs and a pair of base on balls.

On the season, she also obtained a stolen base to go along with two total runs scored.
