Lois Goldner – Starfire
Gabriela Fernandez – Riptide
Gabi had an outstanding week of softball. She went 4-4 at the plate with a walk and hit by pitch. This includes 2 singles, 2 doubles, 5 runs scored, and 5 stolen bases. It’s possible that Gabi has the hottest bat in the league right now. Yesterday was also Gabi’s birthday. Happy Birthday Gabi!
Kayden Amick – Dirt Diamonds
Where do I start? Kayden has battled since week one with a finger injury. Even playing with nine fingers she’s been able to put that bat to use and dominate on the base path. She also has been on fire in the circle. This week she pitched a total of six innings in two games and didn’t allow a single run. In the dugout she is a positive motivator with skittles or gum and is always ready to help cheer her team on.
Marlee Garibay – Desert Fury
At the end of the spring season Marlee decided she wanted to catch. She put in the work over the summer to prove that she could. She goes to her pitcher’s lessons to catch for them. This week Marlee was a beast behind the plate jumping for and blocking balls. She helped lead her team to 3 victories. She caught max outs this week and had her 1st thrown down from home to 3rd that lead to an out. Keep up the hard work! Great job Marshmallow #28
Kristin Raudez – GirlSox
Kristin was a force to be reckoned with behind the plate catching 8 of the allowed 9 innings in a 3 game week. She had 3 putouts on throw downs and caught a girl trying to steal home. She was also a powerhouse at the plate making 7 appearances with 4 hits, getting 2 singles, a triple and and in-the-park home run with 2 RBIs as well as a walk. She was very instrumental in helping her team earn their 3 victories this week. Great job, Kristin!
Mia Rodriguez – Bandits
Mia is playing her first season of league softball having only done it a few times in a PE class at school before coming to NWGS. She’s worked very hard to learn the game and comes to practice every week with a great attitude. This week in a very close game Mia had TWO huge hits and scored a run and had an RBI(her first two hits since the first game). She also made a very dramatic and HUGE catch in the outfield of a very well hit ball saving the game for the Bandits. It was like a dramatic ending to a Hollywood movie.
Her entire team lobbied for her to win player of the game and actually announced it for her at the end of the game. I don’t think she knew she was going to get it either and it was the easiest call of the season for her coach.
Chevelle Gulley – LV Force
Halyi Greenberg – Cyclones
