Senior Standout: Bailey Ferda, Great Falls High

Posted: Updated:

"This year she'll be batting three - she's one of the best hitters we have," said Don Mierhoff, Lady Bison assistant coach.

Bailey Ferda is one of the nicest high school athletes you'll ever meet. At least until she steps up to the plate with a bat in her hand.

"I'm always on her as hitting as being aggressive and she laughs but she kind of changes personalities when she steps into that batter's box," Mierhoff.

"She has been killing it in practice and hitting home runs all the time so probably going to be doing quite a bit of home runs this year," said senior catcher Caitlyn Konesky.

Bailey's bat will be doing plenty of talking this season, which speaks to who she is. She sets the tone for her teammates and leads by her actions.

"It's just fun to have her out there when we're playing and she lifts our spirits when we're down and she's a great player to play with," said Konesky.

"I think it's just really important to be supportive of the younger girls and be really encouraging and just show them through actions and not just words and be a good example," said Lady Bison senior outfielder Bailey Ferda.

She is a good example. Whether it's on the field or at school, she's always doing the right thing.

"You won't hear a bad word come out of the kid. he's a straight A student and just a pleasure to be around," said Mierhoff.

"I've always been privileged to have really good coaches that have been patient with me through every year and I've just always had great teammates that have stayed with me through good and bad and I've just been really blessed," said Ferda.

Well the Lady Bison are fortunate to have a player like Bailey. Her mean bat and nice personality make for quite the softball player.
