Athletes are listed alphabetically:

MIA CLEMENCE, Fremont girls soccer

The junior three-sport standout helped the Packers stay unbeaten in their girls soccer season as her team rolled to two shutout victories last week. In last Monday’s 6-0 home win over Ravenna, Clemence scored two goals. In last Wednesday’s 7-0 road victory over Manistee, Clemence netted a hat trick and added an assist. In five matches entering this week, Fremont is 5-0-0 and has outscored opponents by a combined 26-1 margin.

RYLEE COOPER, North Muskegon softball

The senior showed off her home run power in a WMC nondivisional doubleheader split with visiting Fremont last Thursday. Cooper homered in a 5-4 loss in Game 1 and she went deep twice in a 13-10 victory in Game 2. Earlier in the week, in an 18-0 Game 1 win over Mason County Central during a WMC Rivers road sweep, Cooper walked three times and scored two runs.

BRODY JENNINGS, Oakridge baseball

The senior shortstop and pitcher came through in both areas of the Eagles’ key WMC Lakes Division sweep of host Whitehall last week. In Tuesday’s 4-2, nine-inning victory in Game 1 of the doubleheader, Jennings’ RBI single in the ninth scored the winning run for the Eagles. He had two hits in the game. In Game 2, which began on Tuesday but was suspended by darkness and resumed Friday, Jennings allowed four runs (one earned) on six hits with 11 strikeouts and one walk in seven innings.

CAMI KRAAI, Whitehall track and field

The junior swept the three middle-distance to distance races during a WMC Lakes Division tri-meet last Tuesday at Montague, where Oakridge also competed. Kraai took first place in the 800-meter run with a season-best time of 2:29.68, she won the 1600 run (5:33.4), and she established a personal-record time in the 3200 run in 12:19.09. On top of that, Kraai anchored the first-place 4×800 relay (11:47.69).

ZACH PETERSON, Orchard View baseball

The Cardinals senior assembled a monster week. In last Tuesday’s split with visiting Manistee, he doubled, tripled, drove in four runs, and scored two in Orchard View’s 11-6 win in Game 2. In last Thursday’s sweep of visiting Mason County Central, Peterson hit a grand slam in the first inning of an 11-6 win in Game 1 and went 2-for-2 with a double, four RBIs, and two runs scored in a 12-1 nightcap win in which Noah Smith tossed a no-hitter. In Saturday’s sweep of Muskegon, he pitched a two-hitter in a 10-0 Game 1 victory and helped his cause with three RBIs and two runs scored.

DANIEL ROMERO, Fremont track and field

The senior had a big night in the Rich Tompkins Packer Relays Friday at Fremont in helping the Packers hold off Sparta for the team title. Romero took first place in the 110-meter hurdles (16.03 seconds) and in the 300 hurdles with a season-best time of 41.36, plus he won long jump with a personal-record leap of 20 feet, 11.75 inches. In Tuesday’s WMC Lakes dual against Ludington, Romero established a PR in the 110 hurdles (14.96).
