KLFY Athlete of the Week: Notre Dame softball pitcher Sydnei Simon


It’s one of the things sports teams strive for, but, very few achieve, a perfect record. 

Notre Dame softball finished the regular season 30-0 

It’s something Sydnei Simon, the Lady Pios senior pitcher never thought would be possible.

“It wasn’t at all what I was expecting since they were a bunch of freshmen that came in. but they stepped up their game and it’s been very impressive. and it’s been a great season so far, and I hope we can finish it off with a state championship,” she says.

As one of the leaders on this team, and one of the key players, Sydnei knows her role on the field may help the Pios reach that title goal…

“My role is to make sure I have my pitches on, and I’m hitting my spots,” she explains.

Coach Dale Serie adds, “Sydnei is our sparkplug… She gets us going on and off the field. She does a tremendous job for us not only in the circle but also at the plate as well.  She is our leadoff batter.  We are very blessed and fortunate to have a player like Sydnei.”

Sydnei says the true key to this team’s success thus far: team chemistry… 

She says, “This is one of our closer teams. and that is why it had a big part in why we play so well together.  And I don’t think it’s been like that in my past years.”
