This week we are going to highlight an Independence softball player who had a solid week Emma Wrenn. The junior who anchors the infield at shortstop for the Lady Patriots has a fielding percentage of 1.000 in 4 games played this season.
She has been a consistent performer for the Patriots in primarily the number two spot in the lineup and is certainly a lead off type of hitter. Wrenn has been getting on base at a good rate with a .417 OBP. She has been stranded over 6 times this season on the base path, but gets the wheels in motion for the Lady Patriots offense while playing sold defense.
Her stats to date including the slugfest win over Cuthbertson equates to a team leading batting average of .412, with 17 AB and 7 hits. Other stats show an OPS .834, and SLG .416. She went 2-5 scoring 2 runs in the win over the Cavaliers while setting the table for the middle of the lineup. Her contribution sometimes goes unnoticed, but consistency and dependability count and should be recognized.
Wrenn is a good athlete who plays the most important and challenging position in the infield. She has speed, agility, an accurate throwing arm and makes the routine plays getting important outs for the Indy pitching staff and team defensively. She has versatility and can play in the outfield for the Patriots as well.
The Mint Hill Times sports writers would like to congratulate Emma Wrenn for being recognized as this weeks Player of the Week selection.
