MC Record 2013 All-Area Softball Team


Jamie Jenks, senior, Little Falls

Jenks takes home the Record’s All-Area Player of the Year award for the second year in a row, putting up staggering slugging numbers for the Flyers. Jenks hit .625 with an .875 slugging percentage, collecting seven doubles, two triples and a homer in the weather-shortened season, striking out only once in 56 at bats.



Sierra Virnig, junior, Little Falls

Virnig provided a perfect right-handed compliment to the left-handed All-Area Player of the Year Jamie Jenks, driving in 18 runs while scoring 13 on her own as the Flyers’ primary clean-up hitter. Virnig also finished the spring with four doubles and three home runs while stealing eight bases.



Alea Cekalla, junior, Little Falls

After splitting time a year ago, Cekalla took the reins as the Flyers’ main pitcher this season, registering all seven of the team’s wins. She provided Little Falls with significant production with her bat too, posting a .577 on-base percentage with seven runs and 10 RBIs.



Megan Boser, senior, Pierz

Boser entered her senior season as the school record holder in most offensive categories, then went on to better her own marks with one final dominant spring. The Pioneers’ shortstop hit .424 with a powerful .758 slugging mark, belting three homers and stealing five bases.



Mickey Rocheleau, Pierz

Rocheleau turned in a breakout season to close her Pierz career, hitting .361 for the Pioneers. The senior outfielder slugged .444 with a double and a triple, driving in six runs and scoring four herself.



Alyssa Ohman, senior, Holdingford

Ohman, the top pitcher in the area, carried Holdingford deep into the playoffs with her arm and bat. Ohman pitched every game for the Huskers, notching a 12-7 record, and hit .473 with four doubles, two triples and two home runs.



Jena Volkers, senior, Holdingford

In addition to being a premier shortstop defensively, Volkers closed her career as a four-year starter for the Huskers by hitting .459 with two doubles and a triple, helping lead Holdingford on its deep run in the Section 6AA tournament.



Jacquline Nichols, junior, Royalton

With one season still remaining, Nichols continued to assert herself as one of the top players in Royalton history, earning a spot on the Class A All-State team. Nichols set school records for home runs in a career with seven, doubles in a season with eight and hits in a game with five, finishing with a .587 average, 17 runs and 16 RBIs.



Kaelin Smieja, junior, Upsala

Smieja provided sterling defense wherever needed for Upsala this spring, logging the majority of her time as a strong-throwing catcher for the Prairie Conference South Division co-champion Cardinals. Smieja also finished with a .456 batting average and was selected as all-conference.
