Softball: Five Greyhounds named all-conference

June 5, 2008

Five Shorewood players made the All-Woodland Conference softball team, including three who earned first-team honors.

Outfielder Caitlin Petersen, infielder Kaitlyn Wick and utility player Athena Naylor were voted to the first team, while pitcher Roxanne Kruger and catcher Helen Juffer earned second-team honors.

"I felt coming into the season we had a lot of players either new to the varsity or new to their position," Shorewood coach Dave Berghaus said. "So it was going to be a learning process.

"During the course of the season I saw the confidence build each time our players took the field. With only one senior (Kruger) leaving, this leaves us with a solid nucleus for next season."

Other members of the team were juniors Justine Chappa, Katie Juffer and Anna Herriges, sophomore Gabby Llave and freshmen Myra Werner, Rachael Settecase and Celia Carrol.

"As a coach I could not have asked for a better group of girls to work with," Berghaus said. "Their attitude and willingness to work hard was tremendous."

The Greyhounds were 8-13 overall and 5-11 in league play.

"This season was a big growing and learning year for our team," Kruger said. "We all worked really hard and grew a lot, which is evident in the way we played our regional game.

"My favorite thing about playing the last four years is how supportive the coaching staff and players have been."
