HOUSTON – When the Santa Fe softball team took the field this week for its first game of the 2019 season, there was something different about its uniform.

Heading into this year, new uniforms were ordered. Along with the normalcies of a uniform 10 stars were added to the right sleeve of every Santa Fe uniform top.

The 10 stars representing the 10 lives lost in the horrific May 18, 2018 shooting at Santa Fe High School.

"It was an emotional roller coaster," Santa Fe sophomore Reese Reyna said about when the team saw the uniforms for the first time. "It definitely meant a lot to us. It helped us in every way possible."

Reyna and teammates Ryleigh Mata and Rylie Bouvier were all freshmen at Santa Fe High School last year.

"It means everything to me, knowing that they are all there with me and I can just look at them and see them there," Bouvier said about the stars. "It's hard because they're not here with us but I know they are mentally here."

Reyna wasn't actually at school the morning of the shooting, while Mata and Bouvier were in a geometry class.
