Lockhart Mom an Inspiration

Updated: Saturday, August 3 2013, 10:47 PM CDT
The majority of the Lockhart softball team has played together since they were nine years old.  For the second straight year they are making a run in the state playoffs, and they'll try to continue their trek with a win over Leander on Mother's Day weekend.  A Mother's Day that will have a little more meaning to all of them.

Last year the Lions lost in the third round of the playoffs to Smithson Valley, who went on to win the state title.  So coming up with a motto this year wasn't all that difficult. 

U-B-1-3.

"We got the taste of what it felt like to go far in the playoffs last year," said head coach Katy Snell.  "They came up with the motto unfinished business 2013.

Senior Mikaela Flores has led the charge this year.  She's hitting .478 and has an 18-3 record, and coach Snell says opponents are intimidated by her.

"You've got to go out there with no fear," exclaims Flores.

That's a lesson she's had to learn on and off the field.  Her freshman year doctors diagnosed her mom Melissa with a rare kidney disease.  She had a transplant and stayed healthy, until this year.  She's had three hospital stays, and doctors are trying to determine whether or not she'll need a second transplant.

"My mom and i are the tough cookies - my dad's sensitive," explains Flores.  "She's been my number one inspiration since I was a girl.  She always believed in me.  As a kid though, you never think about them being sick."

"She as solid as a rock, just like her mom", says her dad Sam.  "She doesn't show much emotion.  She's had to grow up fast.  Mmy heart goes out to her, but she's an inspiration to me.  We are supposed to be an inspiration to our kids - but I've learned a lot from her."

Melissa plans on attending the games this weekend, even if that means she has to check herself out of the hospital for three hours.  Either way – Lockhart has found a little added inspiration to their unfinished business.Lockhart Mom an Inspiration
