‘SOFTBALL MAD’ Macy Cortez, 16, has been nominated for the St Pierre Park-sponsored Young Achiever of the Year Award by her grandma Jane Wratten for her recent achievements and her drive for the sport.
Jane said, ‘This was her last year at school with her exams and her sport but she still found time to teach the Guernsey Softball Association Minis – she puts in so much work.’
Macy qualified for Team Great Britain this year after spending weekends off-island.
‘She spent a lot of weekends in England trialling and made the grade; she is now a member of Team GB Softball,’ Jane said.
Macy got into the game through her parents.
‘Her mum played softball, and her dad played it for the island, so she has grown up with it.
‘Macy is very dedicated and has such a lovely personality.’
