Hannah Hurst is a blur. She’s always in motion. The Broken Bow senior is a starter on the regional champion Lady Savage softball team. She’s also a cheerleader on the the Savage cheer squad. She’s been a mainstay both offensively and defensively for the Broken Bow girls’ basketball team. She’s an honor student. The list goes on.
She’s also a joy to have on your team according to Broken Bow softball coach Jimmie Wyrick, who describes the ease with which his senior leader has taken his instruction.
“It has been a blessing to coach Hannah Hurst. She is a blue-collar athlete who has worked hard to help our team achieve its goals. “ Hannah is the strong, quiet type. She lets her actions speak louder than her words; and her actions are numerous, especially when it comes to community involvement.
“Hannah is involved in numerous extracurricular activities in school and in our community, especially with her church. Our team and our school are a better place because of Hannah,” confirmed Wyrick.
Hurst has already garnered a championship as a member of the defending state champion 2019 Broken Bow slowpitch team (no championship was played in spring 2020, but the Lady Savages were a favorite to repeat). She will be back on the field in the upcoming spring softball season, and will stay active doing a hundred different things until then. Coach Wyrick says she keeps working, and keeps giving back to her community.
“She’s a wonderful young woman with a great future.”
