Softball scholarship: A dream come true

By Robert Proctor

The Cuero Record

Even though Regan Dunn officially signed with Lamar University for softball last November, she wanted to celebrate this momentous occasion in front of friends, family and coaches. Last Tuesday, Jan. 30, former coaches and current coaches took the time to congratulate and thank Dunn for this achievement and what she has meant to their lives, before she echoed with her own kinds words of appreciation.

Cuero High School head softball coach Cody Miller has seen Dunn as integral part of the Lady Gobbler program for the past two years with still her senior season remaining. From pitching to hitting, her leadership may be what stands out most.

“She’s created the foundation in which we’ve built a lot of our teams off,” Miller said. “Strong pitching is second to none, being able to get people out. It’s added a dynamic that most people don’t have, not only her skill but her competitiveness, her ability to come back after she’s had a tough inning. I think that’s the true sign of someone who has next level potential.”

As dominant as Dunn has been over the past two seasons for Cuero, there have been times of adversity on the field, yet she always shows resiliency.

“It’s not about what you’re doing when it’s good; it’s about what you’re doing when you’re struggling and your ability to bounce back time and time again,” Miller noted. “I think it’s been contagious, the competitive factor for all of our team and program.”
