Woodcreek's Breault homers, but North drops Optimist game
By: Press Tribune sports staff
It wasn’t enough to deliver victory to her North team in the Optimist All Star Softball Game, but it was a nice way to close out her high school career for Woodcreek High senior Courtney Breault. The Timberwolves’ second baseman blasted a three-run home run in the eighth inning Wednesday night to pull the North within a single run at 5-4, but that was as close as it would get. Breault, who will play her college ball at the University of Arkansas next season, was named the North team’s MVP in the contest. As impressive high school softball careers come to an end, the Optimist All Star Softball Game has become an annual event, featuring the best senior players from the greater Sacramento area. Roseville pitcher Kiana Levy did a nice job keeping the North within striking distance with three strong innings in the circle beginning in the fifth frame. Oakmont’s Jessica Rosnack threw the final two stanzas to close things out. Other local players who laced them up for the North team are Kelsey Mooney of Del Oro; Madison Smith of Granite Bay; Nicole Wilkerson of Lincoln; Leslie Coffee of Oakmont; Katie Swenson and Summer Powell of Rocklin; Stephanie Nippert, Courtney Galli and Tegan Schmidt of Whitney; and Kelly Rose of Woodcreek.
