Maddie Murphy (Williamsville Softball) The junior outfielder came up clutch for the Bullets on Tuesday. With one out in the bottom of the seventh, Murphy cashed in on a RBI single to give Williamsville a 2-1 walk off win against Riverton. Murphy went 2-4 on the day, but her hit to end it was clearly her biggest.
Grant Thoroman (North Mac Baseball) Thoroman went 1-2 with a triple against Litchfield which is solid, but it was his work on the mound that landed him on this week’s #PTP. 17 strikeouts in a no hitter is guaranteed to earn you a spot, as Thoroman was dominant in the Panthers’ 11-0 non-conference win over Litchfield.
Faith Washko (SHG Soccer) She’s been doing this since she arrived on West Campus, but it’s still impressive to see one of the most talented scorers in the area get it done. Washko recorded a hat trick for SHG in a 4-0 win over Jacksonville as the Cyclones remain undefeated on the young season.
Chad Saner (Lanphier Baseball) The Lanphier ace has put up some strong showings in the Lions’ young season, with his 6 2/3 innings of work in a 2-0 win over Williamsville arguably his best of the season. Saner picked up with the win while striking out 14 batters and walking just one.
Reagan Miles (Rochester Softball) This rocket is likely to be a regular on this list once again this season. Arguably the best pitcher in the CS8, Miles was on her game yet again in a big conference win over Springfield High. Miles threw a complete game, tossing 11 strikeouts and walking just one batter. The Senators had the bases loaded in the top of the seventh with the Rockets leading 5-0, but Miles worked her way out of the jam to improve to 3-0 on the year.
Matt Brenneisen (SHG Baseball) Brenneisen bought the big bat out for the Cyclones’ first conference matchup with Jacksonville. SHG defeated Jacksonville 9-1 on Comstock Field Tuesday evening and Brenneisen had a lot to do with it. He tallied up three hits, bringing in five runs in the big victory to help the Cyclones run away from the Crimsons.
Lauren Ladage (Auburn Soccer) Ladage picked the perfect time to score her first two varsity goals. With the Trojans trailing Williamsville 1-0 at the half, the junior midfielder brought the upstart Trojans all the way back, scoring two straight goals to secure a 2-1 Sangamo victory. This was the first time Auburn has beaten the Bullets in its four-year program history.
Cam Edmonson (Rochester Baseball) The Indiana State commit has had cleaner days on the mound, but what he did Wednesday against Springfield High was on of his gutsier performances. Edmonson allowed three hits and no runs while striking out eight in 5 innings of work. The Rochester ace stranded runners on third multiple times, even working his way out of a tough third inning that saw him hit two batters. The senior got things done with his bat as well, going 2-4 with an RBI in the Rockets 6-5 win over the Senators that saw Rochester improve to 4-0 in the CS8.
Alyia Oliver (Pleasant Plains Softball) In a rain-shortened conference matchup with Auburn, Alyia Oliver did just about everything for the Cardinals. Striking out six batters in a complete game that was called in the sixth due to rain, Oliver didn’t allow a run and stole home for the game’s only run in a 1-0 Sangamo win.
