Chana Wolfe, who plays softball for Salina South, was chosen as the Salina Imaging Athlete of the Month for April. Wolfe earned second team all-league honors a year ago as a pitcher.
“It is really awesome to have been selected to be athlete of the month,” Wolfe said. “It means a lot to see that my hard work is paying off.”
The Cougars brought back nearly their entire roster from last season and Wolfe said that has been a benefit this season.
“I love all the girls on the team,” Wolfe said. “We are sisters on and off the field. We have gelled really well, being our second year for most of us playing together.”
Being mentally tough was an area Wolfe wanted to improve on this season.
“Going out there and doing what I know how to do and controlling what I can control (was what I wanted to focus on),” Wolfe said.
Next year, Wolfe plans on continuing her softball and academic career at Mid-American Christian University in Oklahoma City, where she wants to study business management and sports administration.
