Joe Henry, MT Head Softball Coach

Cassidy has an exceptional work ethic each and every day. She has been an inspiration to many young players with her determination on the floor over the past four years. Her passion for the game is infectious and always brought out the best in her teammates as well. She will forever be remembered as the Secretary of Defense as she was a defensive force every time she stepped onto the court. Cassidy also helped with the youth basketball program, played soccer and softball, is involved in 4-H, and is a member of the National Honors Society.

Ben Ackley, MT Head Girls Basketball Coach

Cassidy Lovett is an exceptional athlete and has definitely played a role in the of the growth of our Girls Soccer Program for the past 2 years. Cassidy first touched a soccer ball her junior year, but even being new to the sport she won our Lockdown Defender Award this past season. She has been a huge asset to our defense. With her tenacity she stops just about any attacker who approaches her with the ball, and with her speed she can recover to catch just about anyone else who breaks through our defensive line. There is no question she has the athletic ability, but that alone isn’t enough to make a great player. Cassidy also has a competitive spirit and the willingness to learn and challenge herself as a player. This is why, even as a new player, she quickly learned to how to fit perfectly into a defensive role. Her determination to grow as a player allowed her footwork and soccer knowledge to catch up with her athletic abilities and it truly made for a dangerous combination on the field.
