Athletes are listed alphabetically:

JAYNA EDMONDSON, Manistee girls soccer

It’s been a challenging girls soccer season for Manistee, but Edmondson has been a bright spot for the Mariners. In Friday’s 8-0 nonleague home victory over Benzie Central, the senior forward tallied five goals. This is the final week of the regular season for girls soccer. Edmondson reached the 1,000-point club during the basketball season. She recently signed to play basketball at Muskegon Community College.

ADDISON GILLARD, Ravenna softball

The Ravenna junior has been pitching tough all season, but she’s hit her stride recently at the plate. Gillard tossed a no-hitter with 13 strikeouts in an 11-0 win in Game 1 over Mason County Central last Thursday, a two-hitter with 11 strikeouts in a 5-0 victory over Zeeland East in Game 1 Friday, and a three-inning two-hitter in a 16-1 win over Allendale Saturday. At the plate, Gillard went 3-for-3 with a home run and six RBIs vs. Allendale, 4-for-5 with five RBIs in two games vs. MCC, and 2-for-5 with a double vs. Zeeland East.

KENZIE GREENE, Holton softball

The Holton junior had a big week at the plate and in the pitcher’s circle during the Red Devils’ home sweeps of North Muskegon and Whitehall last Wednesday and Thursday. In a 13-5 win in Game 1 over North Muskegon, Greene went 2-for-5 with a home run. In an 8-2 victory in Game 2 vs. the Norse, Greene went 2-for-3 at the plate with another homer and she picked up the pitching win with a 12-strikeout three-hitter. In Thursday’s second game vs. Whitehall, an 11-3 win, Greene homered and tripled and picked up the pitching win with a seven-strikeout three-hitter.

BEN MEYERS, North Muskegon baseball

The North Muskegon senior and Davenport University signee continues to produce at the plate, on the base paths, and in the field as catcher and shortstop for his state-ranked team. Meyers recorded the 100th stolen base of his career with a swipe of home plate during a 3-0 win over top-ranked Algonac Saturday at Whitehall. In last Wednesday’s sweep at Holton (16-0 and 6-0), he went a combined 5-for-8 with two triples and three RBIs. In two wins Saturday, including a 6-0 victory over Whitehall, Meyers finished a combined 3-for-5 with a double.

DANIEL ROMERO, Fremont boys track and field

The Fremont senior established two personal records in his hurdles events and won a third event in long jump during the WMC Lakes Division championships Friday at Pine Street Athletic Facility in Fremont. Romero won the 110-meter hurdles with a time of 14.85 seconds and took first in the 300 hurdles with a time of 39.40. He also won long jump with an effort of 20 feet, 8.5 inches, as the Packers posted a strong team effort in a runner-up finish to Whitehall.

BLAKE WEIRICH, Hart baseball

The Hart senior assembled a dream game in a 13-0 victory over visiting Hesperia in Game 1 of a WMC Rivers Division doubleheader last Wednesday. Weirich pitched a five-inning perfect game, striking out 10 of the 15 batters he faced. At the plate, he went 3-for-3 with a double on the first pitch he saw and two home runs. The first homer was a two-run shot and the second was a grand slam. He totaled six RBIs, three runs scored, and a stolen base.
