Karlee Mitok; Lil Kulana- Karlee made some really good plays at third and loved being behind the plate. She also hit really well. She hustled on and off the field, and always tries her best with a smile on her face. Keep up the great work!
Sydnee Smith; Decepticons- Sydnee came to play this week for sure! She had a clutch 2 Rbi single on Tuesday night which became the deciding runs. She has been great behind the plate constantly holding runners and keeping her pitchers focused on the task at hand and keeping them calm. She also is always the first girl in the dugout to congratulate her teammates on their successes. Great Job Sydnee!
Ava Vaughn; Outlaws- Ava first picked up a softball in the Spring season when she joined the Outlaws. When she stepped on the field she didn't know any mechanics of hitting, throwing or even the rules of the game. She has worked extremely hard, with a great attitude this Fall and it has culminated with her best week on the diamond. She went 3-for-3, with two RBIs and two runs scored for the Outlaws in two important games. Defensively, her fielding has improved tremendously and she continues to work hard every week.
Rylee Franssen; Black Widows- Rylee has become a natural leader for her team. She leads the team during team cheers, warm-ups and stretches. She also leads her team in slugging. She has turned into a triples machine. Most importantly, she leads the team by example. She is constantly striving to improve her skills. This player also has a lot of heart. The entire team (including the coaches) look to Rylee "Hustle" Franssen for leadership and she delivers every time.
Olivia de Becker; Lady Force - This is her first season catching, her third season playing, and she’s been doing such an amazing job. She caught 8 innings this week and had to really bring it Saturday with our double header as our other catcher got sick. She hurt her ankle, worked through it, and followed it up with a single and 2RBI’s. She works hard every practice and even harder in every game. KEEP IT UP LIV!!! YOU’RE DOING AN AMAZING JOB!!!
Madison Howard; Girlsox - Madison "Mad Dog" Howard had a great week both offensively and behind the plate. At the plate, Madison batted .500, scored two runs, and had an on-base percentage of .600. Defensively, she caught a solid 5 innings, including two amazing throwdowns to catch runners stealing at integral moments of the game. Madison has been a driving force at practice, keeping a positive attitude and pushing her teammates to work hard. Great job, Mad Dog! We are proud of you!!
Ellie Watson; Juiced- Ellie had a great week. She pitched two complete games, winning both. In 7 total innings she gave up 1 run, unearned, scattered 4 hits, and struck out 12 while walking none. From the plate she was 4 for 5 with a double and a sacrifice bunt, stole a base, drove in 5 runs and scored 4. On defense Ellie had 3 assists and 7 put outs from the circle and first base. She turned a double play by catching a hard comeback line drive in the circle then quickly throwing a laser to third base to end the inning. Her enthusiasm is as strong as ever and she’s having a great time playing with and against girls she’s known for years, win or lose. Great work Ellie!
Harmony Dominguez; Cyclones- Harmony played fantastic this week in her two games. She stepped in played catcher having not played that position in years. She threw out a runner and handled the pitchers very well. On Saturday, she pitched an unbelievable game against the best hitting team in the division. At the plate she went 3 for 4 with a double and three RBI’s. She also stole two bases. Great Job Harmony!
