Two Incoming Softball Student-Athletes Earn Honors
Kylee Lahners and Courtney Gano will be freshmen at UW in the fall of 2011 and signed NLIs earlier this year to play softball under head coach Heather Tarr. Both student-athletes just earned more honors at the end of their high school careers.
Lahners is a second baseman from Laguna Hills and a Team USA Junior National Team member. She was named to the All-Orange County first-teamfor the third consecutive season. Lahners batted .506 with three doubles, four triples and eight home runs. She drove in 17 runs and scored 31 runs. She had a .594 on-base percentage and a .938 slugging percentage.
Gano, from West Covina, Calif., played in the San Gabriel Valley Senior All-Star game. She was on the North team that defeated the South team, 21-8.
The game was played to honor the Wilson High School coach who died suddenly last summer. Bruyninckx's 3-year old grandson Brody Schatzman, accompanied by Bruyninckx's widow, Joyce, threw out the first pitch.
Gano was the designated hitter and led off with singles for the North. Two errors and a single gave the North a 3-0 lead in the bottom of the first inning. Gano had three hits, including a triple and a home run, and scored four runs for the North.
"It's an honor to play here," Gano said. "I've been here every year to support my teammates and I'm just happy to play with the best in the area."
