Lauren Mistkowski started this petition to NJSIAA

Due to the pandemic currently affecting our nation it has brought schools to be shut down for a period of time not knowing when they will be opened again. With that, it has put a stop in all spring sports from practicing both with and without coaches. For many, this is not only the last time that they will play for their school, but play the sport in general.

As a high school senior who will not be playing in college, I can not imagine my last time competing to be my last game of junior year. People do not realize how much a sport can become part of their lives and how important it is to ones identity. Softball has been what I look forward to every year. For many it’s a home away from home. It’s an escape from all the worries of life and brings people together to play the sport they love. 

As the season has already been cut short with the time already taken off from school, this petition was started in order to help show what people would do to make sure that they would be able to step back on that field again for one more time. As a state, we need to come together in order to show how important it is for this season to be played. Thank you for the taking the time to read this, I hope we can get as many people as possible to sign this :)
