In a 17-1 Game 2 victory, she finished 2-for-3 with a pair of homers, three RBIs, and three runs scored.

ADDI HOVEY, Hart girls track and field

The Pirates junior continued to shine, even among some of the top track and field athletes in the Greater Muskegon and lakeshore areas. Hovey took first place in three individual events during the West Michigan All-Star Meet last Wednesday at Reeths-Puffer: 12.55 seconds in the 100-meter dash, 25.86 seconds in the 200, and 5-foot-4 in the high jump. She also anchored Hart’s first-place 4×100 relay, which finished with a time of 50.74 seconds.

BOBBY JAZWINSKI, Hart boys track and field

The Pirates freshman more than held his own during the Distance Night Under the Lights Saturday at Houseman Field in Grand Rapids. Jazwinski placed seventh among 141 runners in the 3200-meter run with a personal-record time of 9:23.64. All other finishers in the top 17 of the event are juniors or seniors. In the West Michigan All-Star Meet last Wednesday at Reeths-Puffer, Jazwinski placed third in the 1600 (4:27.05).

EVAN MILLER, Oakridge baseball

The junior catcher and No. 3 hitter in the lineup had a big two-day stretch last week as the Eagles clinched the outright WMC Lakes Division title with a sweep of visiting Montague Tuesday and earned a convincing nonleague win over Muskegon Catholic Central Wednesday. In a 16-1, three-inning win over Montague in Game 1, Miller was 1-for-1 with two walks and a run scored. In a 16-2 Game 2 win vs. Montague, he was 2-for-4 with a double, two RBIs, and three runs scored. In an 11-2 nonleague win over MCC, Miller was 2-for-4 with three RBIs and a run scored.

CA’MAR READY, Whitehall boys track and field

The Vikings senior had a big day in the West Michigan All-Star Meet last Wednesday at Reeths-Puffer. Ready established a personal-record height in winning the pole vault event at 14 feet, 3 inches, beating the runner-up by nearly two feet. He also was part of a school-record time in Whitehall’s 4×200-meter relay including Trannon Aylor, Malcolm Earvin, and Kyler Frees which ran 1:29.23 for a runner-up finish.

NATALIE ROSEL, Ravenna softball

The Bulldogs freshman showed off her pitching and hitting prowess in a big week. In a sweep of Division 4 sixth-ranked Mount Pleasant Sacred Heart on Monday, Rosel pitched a no-hitter with seven strikeouts and two walks in a 3-0 Game 2 win. In a sweep of Hart on Wednesday, the lefty spun a two-hitter with eight strikeouts and one walk plus she homered twice in a 13-2 Game 2 win. In a sweep of Division 2 third-ranked Hudsonville Unity Christian Thursday, Rosel tossed a three-hitter and had a two-run single in a 6-0 Game 2 win.
