Congratulations to our Hardware Hank “Nuts & Bolts” Athletes of the Week: Ashton Hoeppner, senior, Winona softball and Emma Frost, junior, Farmington softball.
Name: Ashton Hoeppner
Information: Ashton was mighty on the mound last week as she helped propel Winona to their first softball title in school history. She fanned 14 in the finals, 40 in three tournament games and also went 3-for-10 from the plate with three RBI. The senior gave up only two runs in three tournament games and scattered just 16 hits, including two in the finals.
Name: Emma Frost
Information: Frost. Fitting name. She had ice in her veins as she stepped up to the plate in a scoreless championship game with two outs, in the bottom of the 10th...and she was the last batter of the game. The junior belted the walk-off winner over the left field fence to secure Farmington's first-ever state softball championship. She went 5-for-11 on the tournament with four runs scored and two RBI.
