Devils Homecoming spotlight: Kelsey Andrews

The Eagle Valley softball team might not win the Slope, but the Devils will still have plenty of good memories after the season, according to Kelsey Andrews. The senior plays a key role for Coach Bill Beasley’s squad at second base. When she isn’t turning double plays or smacking doubles, Andrews enjoys drawing and planing her exciting future.

Parents: Becky and Rob Andrews

Siblings: Megan, 14, Katie, 12.

What’s your favorite thing about softball? “My teammates. They always make me laugh. They are the funniest people I’ve ever met.”

What do you like about playing second base? “I used to play shortstop, but I feel like there is more pressure at shortstop. I don’t freak out as much at second. I’m good at it. Although, I do have a weird thing where I throw it as hard as I can at Kayla (Gagnon). I’m like, ‘Oh, my god.'”

How do you think the season went? “We didn’t win a lot, but I’m really proud of how the team has picked it up these last couple games. We lost to Palisade, and that was really hard. We played really well against Rifle.”

What was the best moment this year? “The last game of our home tournament, the last out was a tag at home for the win. That was good.”

Favorite food? “Spaghetti.”

What kind of sauce? “Marinara with meatballs. I gotta have the meatballs. My dad makes it.”

Favorite movie? “Ghost World. How you ever heard of it? It’s really random. Thora Birch and Scarlett Johansson are in it. It was before Scarlett Johansson got famous. It’s kind of old. It’s based on a comic book by the same name.”

Favorite band or musician? “Right now, the Distillers.”

Favorite thing to do outside of softball? “I like drawing and art.”

Future plans? “I plan on majoring in psychology. I’m thinking about going to Rochester (New York).”

If you could have any superhuman power, what would it be? “We’ve already decided on that. I would have super card throwing ability. We watched a movie about it.”
