Centennial’s Softball Team Brings Easter Fun to Campus Grounds

FRISCO, TEXAS- With Easter fast approaching, the tradition of placing candy-filled eggs on the freshly mowed grass is in full swing.


This year is the Centennial Softball Team’s third year of hosting the Community Easter Egg Hunt along with help from their booster club and NHS volunteers. McKenzie Reeves, Head Softball Coach is responsible for hosting the event and coordinating the efforts behind the scenes to ensure the event is a success.


The Egg Hunt is taking place on Friday, March 29th, 2024 at 12 p.m. and is free admission for all.


Coach Reeves shared more about the best part of hosting the event.


“I think seeing my girls enjoy being part of the community event and working for a bigger purpose, and it’s bigger than a game, it’s building leadership and allowing them to interact with the community.”


Reeves also mentioned the origins of this tradition that she carried over from a school she previously worked at.


“The egg hunt was something we did at Coppell [High School] and something that we figured we could do here [at Centennial] as well. It’s a chance to spread awareness about our softball program.”


In addition to spreading awareness about Centennial’s softball program, the softball team is heavily involved in the process of setting up the event, monitoring during the event, and helping with the tear-down process.


The team packs all the eggs and transports them to the fieldhouse a few days prior to the event day. The team also visits elementary schools to pass out flyers about the egg hunt they’re hosting. 


In the early morning, the week of the event, players head out onto the softball and baseball fields to place eggs on the fields. During the event, the softball players help monitor the field, answer questions, direct people, and collect eggs after the egg hunt concludes.


Senior Audrey Chambers is one of the many softball players who’ve helped at the event previously.


“Last year it was one of my favorite things that we’ve done. Everyone was so enthusiastic about setting out the eggs, being able to interact with people, and creating a fun and interactive environment. I liked how everyone was coming together as a team and setting it up, putting the candy in the eggs. My favorite part was hiding and throwing the eggs out in the field.”


Coach Reeves had one final message to share about the event. 


“It’s [the Easter egg hunt] something that I want to use to promote my program, Centennial, and my kids. I want the community to see what we can offer them, and it’s fun to bring the community and see the little kids enjoy the day.”
