Enid’s Mackenzie Sutton – Character Counts Presented by Curttright Honda

Enid softball player Mackenzie Sutton has been playing her sport for thirteen years now. She says all it took was going outside, picking up a bat and a ball, and being ready to play. After spring’s slowpitch season, she learned a lot about how her character should be on and off the field.

“This season was one of my favorite seasons, I learned so much and grew more as a respectful teen,” she said. “Moments that stood out during this season was being able to get back up after hitting fences and making great catches.”

Sutton’s favorite game she played this season was Enid’s senior night. Even though they ended up not winning the game, she was glad to see how much her team grew in such a short time. Sutton likes being able to represent her school and her community because she likes getting to be with people she considers family, like her teammates, because there are no better people to win or lose with. One person Sutton admires is her mother.

“The person I look up to as a role model would have to be my mom, she is the strongest person I know,” she said. “She has been through so much and is still my number one supporter. I wouldn’t know what I would do if she wasn’t here by my side!”

Sutton stays motivated because she knows she has a full life ahead of her and she knows she can do anything she puts her mind to. She will be a senior in the fall and after graduating high school, she plans on going to college with a scholarship to study medicine, in hopes to become a medic in the military.
