Trojets’ Greenfield, Jeffers and Willems make ISC first team
WEBSTER CITY – The senior core of the Northeast Hamilton softball team was compensated for their efforts this season when the Iowa Star Conference recently released its all-conference teams.
Veterans Molly Greenfield, Jennifer Jeffers and Jenn Willems were all unanimous selections to the all-ISC North Division first team. Sophomore first baseman Leah Meyer was a second-team pick, while junior left fielder Jaidyn Timm landed on the honorable mention squad.
The Trojets weren’t represented on the elite team – a combination of the top players from the North and South divisions.
Greenfield was a formidable foe for the rest of the league in the pitching circle and with the bat in her hands. She put together a 6-7 record against conference opponents and finished the campaign with a 5.34 earned run average. In 80 innings of ISC work, she struck out 48 batters.
Greenfield hit at a .372 clip with eight runs batted in.
Jeffers, who played third, packed a punch with the bat and used her speed to turn singles into doubles and doubles into triples. She hit .395 with 14 RBIs.
Willems was one of the toughest catchers in the conference to steal on – very few tried – and she also hit .340 with 12 RBIs.
Meyer hit .400 in conference games; Timm hit at a .324 clip.
Conference heavyweights Clarksville and Don Bosco dominated the elite team, gobbling up seven of the 10 spots.
Senior pitcher Kimberly Wedeking, junior infielder Isibella Vance and sophomore outfielder Hannah Faust were Clarksville’s representatives on the elite squad. Don Bosco collected spots for senior catcher Cate Paulsen, senior infielder Brittney Hickson, sophomore outfielder Morgan Frost and senior utility player Karli Welter.
Other elite team picks were North Tama senior infielder Sarah Howard, Janesville junior infielder Mary Hovenga and Janesville junior outfielder Victoria Leyh.
