Getting her team back on campus this fall has had a little added meaning for University of Oregon head coach Missy Lombardi.

After months of being forced to be apart due to the COVID-19 pandemic, after countless Zoom meeting and telephone calls, gathering again as a softball team has been really refreshing, the third-year head coach said.

“We’d all say there’s times that we’ve taken it for granted,” she said. “To get it taken away from us, we’ve always appreciated it but now we appreciate it even more and the little things that go along with it.”
