Congratulations to our 2023 All Conference Team Members:

2nd Team:

Gracie Franzen our lone senior, led the team hitting .272 overall in being named a second-team pick in the outfield. Her 20 runs scored were easily also a team-best number, as were her 25 hits, 19 singles, seven doubles and .348 slugging percentage.

Gracie Harrington a star all summer defensively at catcher, could also hit the softball pretty good too posting a .245 average that was second on the team while her 14 walks and .367 on-base percentage were also tops for the Midland offense. The junior was among the league’s best in fielding percentage with a .986 mark that was fourth in the East while she also threw out eight runners attempting to steal, a number that was tops in the entire league.

Honorable Mention:

Anna Bartels was our ace in the pitching circle this season, was third in the East in opponent batting average limiting them to a mere .194 average while her 44 strikeouts against league batters was fifth-best. Bartels’ 15 pitching starts was tops in the TRC East as was her 475 batters faced. Her 16 total appearances in the circle was tied for third-best as well.
