If you were to ask Wylie softball coach Heather Collier and her players what has been the biggest driving force behind the Lady Bulldogs’ current 11-game winning streak, you’d hear one word pop up more than any other: Confidence.
The biggest difference between the team that started the season 3-10 and the one preparing for this weekend’s Region I-5A quarterfinal series against Lubbock Coronado isn’t physical, the Lady Bulldogs will tell you. It’s mental.
Wylie, which is now 17-14, has a belief and mental toughness now it simply didn’t possess early in the season. And the improved results are a direct result of that fact.
