Golden Eagles softball flying high

By Mark Blentlinger

Second-year Head Coach Becca Schemberger has her team on a hot streak right now, boasting a 13-3 overall record and undefeated in conference play.

Coach Schemberger is happy with how her team is playing. They have really been hitting their stride, defeating some strong D1 schools such as Petoskey and Portage Central. Some of their other wins include Watervliet, Pennfield, Kalamazoo Christian, Gull Lake, Coloma, Constantine and Bronson. The three losses were to Bronson, Three Rivers and Petoskey.

Team stats are impressive with a .348 team batting average, .459 team on base percentage, 112 singles, 44 doubles, 14 home runs, with 154 runs scored and only 77 runs given up. The team will be losing three senior leaders this season: Alayna Meade, Cassidy Brunner and Camden Brunner. The seniors are making their mark. Meade has a .400 batting average with 20 RBIs and 4 home runs. Camden Brunner is hitting .439 with a .549 on base percentage. Cassidy Brunner is dominating the circle with a 10-0 record and a 1.017 ERA. Junior shortstop Lauren Evens has a .491 batting average with 4 home runs and 32 RBIs.

The leader of the team and up for MLive player of the week, sophomore outfielder Sydney Drenth, has an outstanding .526 batting average, 562 on base percentage, 16 RBIs and 23 runs scored. The upcoming schedule will definitely test this team with opponents such as Marshall, Sturgis, Battle Creek Lakeview, Portage Northern, Mattawan, Parchment, Walled Lake Northern, Edwardsburg and Lawton.
