ENNIS -- More and more athletes are getting creative with their time at home, and that goes for the Ennis softball team, which created a virtual game of catch. The Mustangs only had one week of practice before the season was postponed, so it’s a way to keep it going.

"It’s really cool to see everyone again because I haven’t kept in that great of contact, I’ve just been kind of hanging out with my family. So seeing everyone again in the video and in the group chat is really cool,” said Jenna Snider, a junior on the team.

For the Mustangs, this video is a fun way to get out and practice.

“We’re staying in the gym and we’re still working, even though we are at home. So I think it’s important to continue to practice softball as much as you can on your own time,” said sophomore Shae Lovett.

For Ennis’ lone senior, Kara Elliott, her final season of her high school career could be over. And she hopes this video puts a smile on the faces of those who are going through the same thing.

“I think it’s been kind of a negative time right now. And just throwing out some positive (energy) and just letting people know that, yes, we’re at home and we’re quarantined, but we are still having a little fun and we’re trying to stay positive and get through this all of us together,” said Elliott.

The team says they want to see the Ennis golf team do the challenge next.
