The best reason for Randy Burditt to stay for his ninth season as manager of the Los Alamos Hilltopper softball team was his main reason for leaving.
Even after putting his resignation in, Burditt still talks at length about the returners from the 2008 season.
“The young kids coming up, their basic skills are there,” Burditt said. “They’re going to be a great team. It’s a great time for me to step down.”
A lot of things have changed for Burditt this past season personally.
In April, Burditt’s father passed away. Also, before the season started, his daughter Megan Burditt was offered and accepted a scholarship to play college softball at Western Nebraska.
Coach Burditt said because so many things had happened in his family recently, he realized how much time he had missed with his loved ones while working with the program for the last 17 years.
Burdit said he’s also already made detailed plans about catching Megan’s collegiate softball games this spring.
The Hilltopper returners — the team had just four seniors on it this season — will still need guidance, and with his plans to see his daughter, he wouldn’t be able to devote to them the time they’d need.
