LAHS softball keeps win streak alive

In Major League Baseball, the talk of the world is about Shohei Otani, the Los Angeles Angels’ two-way star that is dominating on the mound and at the plate in his first season in America. Locally, it turns out Los Alamos High School has a two-way threat of its own on the softball team. Katie Wimer, a sophomore, continued her outstanding season Wednesday afternoon against Albuquerque Academy, picking up a win on the mound with a complete game, and driving in 7 runs at the plate in a 15-5 victory. 

This season, Wimer has pitched 30.1 innings on the mound, collecting a record of 4-1 while striking out 27 batters. At the plate, she has been even more impressive, batting .492 while driving in 35 RBI’s and knocking three home runs out of the park. 

In an important district game against the Chargers, the Hilltoppers needed every part of Wimer’s game to pull out the victory. 

After the pitchers dominated for the first two innings of Wednesday’s game, posting clean innings, Academy took a 1-0 lead in the top of the third inning. 

That’s when the LAHS offense woke up and returned to the form that it has shown throughout district play.
