GOSHEN, Ind. — For injured athletes, the love of their sport, or the love of their team, can keep them going through the difficult process of recovery.

Senior pitcher for the Goshen College baseball team, Eric Pettipiece, and Junior utility for the GC softball team, Shea VanScoter, have both been faced with serious injuries, but still push to get back on the field.

After tearing a ligament in his elbow, Pettipiece is currently working through physical therapy, and focuses on achieving small milestones.

VanScoter has suffered multiple ailments, from a dislocated kneecap, to shoulder surgery and a back injury. She says while it’s worth making the push to return to her sport, the initial timeline for recovery is always difficult to accept.

Both VanScoter and Pettipiece find it difficult at times to find their identity when they get back out on the field, not knowing how others will react or how they’ll perform.

But their love of the sport or love of being a part of their team always brings them back, and gives the proper motivation needed to continue on their athletic journey.
