Thomas’ gregarious personality propels Knights

Newport senior outfielder is enjoying her senior softball season.

Newport Knights senior softball player Noelle Thomas is confident her team can return to the Class 4A state tournament for the second consecutive season.

Thomas, a senior outfielder who will attend University of Washington this fall, hopes to continue her softball career with the Huskies. She will be studying pre-med in college. The Knights currently have an overall record of 14-8.

Newport second-year head coach Parris Mamon is a huge fan of Thomas’ personality.

“Since day one when I first met her, you could tell she was one of those kids that not only strives on the field but in the classroom. She has got such a great personality and is an all-around great young lady. She is going to be something special in this world when it’s all said and done,” Mamon said of Thomas.

Thomas credits Mamon for turning the Knights into a 4A powerhouse in the 2018 and 2019 seasons.

“I think Parris Mamon really brought a new intensity to the team. I think our skill was always really there, I just think we needed someone to bring that out,” Thomas said. “I think everyone on this team is fully expecting to get back to state (tournament). Hopefully that happens for us.”

Recently the Bellevue Reporter had an opportunity to ask Thomas some questions about her life away from the softball field.
