LEESBURG, Fla. (February 9, 2017) – Lake-Sumter State College Softball was featured on espnW’s Top 10 Plays of the Week for a walk-off grand slam by Brianna Bennett in last Friday’s game.

Thanks to Bennett, LSSC Softball won 7-6 on Friday at home against Polk State College.

The sophomore catcher says that the grand slam wasn’t even the best part of the game. “Winning the game for the team was the most important to me,” she says. “Everything we do on the team; we do for each other.”

As for the rest of the season, Bennett says the team is off to a great start and she’s “looking forward to continuing their momentum throughout the season.”

Bennett is a Jacksonville native studying criminal justice.

The Lady Lakehawks play at home tomorrow, Feb. 10, against Palm Beach State and away at Pasco-Hernando State College on Saturday.

Even though he “[believed] that [mental illness] would label [him] as a failure,” he sought help and support. Despite his thoughts that post-traumatic stress disorder would make people see him as “a weapon with the safety broken,” Simons encourages others that it isn’t the end- that a diagnosis isn’t the final verdict.              Mental…
