FINAL 2018 SEASON RECORD: 18-11

SEASON WRAP-UP FROM HEAD COACH TRINA CHRISTEN:

The Wahoo Warrior softball team ended the 2018 season with a record of 18-11.

In regular season conference play they finished 6-2 against some very tough conference opponents. During the course of the season, the Warriors were a very strong hitting team.

The offense was led by senior Macy Homes, with a batting average of .483. She also broke the school record for most home runs in a single season with 10. Senior Mattie Pfeiffer was not far behind her, with an average of .400 and 6 home runs.

Senior Sydney Vanicek hit in the four hole for the Warriors, and ended with an average of .369. Senior Janisa Gronenthal also had a hot bat at the end of the season.

On the mound senior Kylee Swanson led the Warriors. She pitched 149 innings over the course of the season. She struck out 92 opponents, while only allowing 18 walks.

Seniors Jaci Schnakenberg and Katie Borchers were tough defenders in the outfield. They had some tough balls this season, and made some great catches to help lead us to victory!

Senior Karley Kaiser worked hard on the dirt at second base to make sure balls stayed in the infield. She made some outstanding diving plays that prevented the other team from scoring runs. Senior Leah Maass was an important key to this team on the base paths. Her quick feet and aggressiveness helped plate many runs.

Nine seniors led this Warrior team all season long. We will miss them greatly next season!
