Before attending college, Lewis was a four-year representative softball athlete and volunteer for Aspire Education’s Reading Buddies program, according to the letter.
“There is nothing in the world that Dixie wants more than to be on Pomona’s campus and playing with her friends on a softball team for coach Ferguson,” Soren was referring to in the letter. “It was her dream and the pinnacle of a lot of training that she was following throughout the shutdown. Her virtual Pomona classmates helped her navigate both semesters of COVID and we will. Thank them forever for building our bond with our daughters only through the screen. ”
Joanne Ferguson, Pomona-Pitzer Softball Coach Said in the letter that the team was “heartbroken” by Lewis’ death.
“As an athlete, Dixie quickly caught our attention because of her talent on the pitch – but when she joined our team, it was a warm spirit, a positive energy and a smile that won us over,” Ferguson said. Dixie made a lasting positive impact on our team this year and she will forever be a part of the Sagehen softball family.
