BROCK NORDBERG, Riverton: After a slow start, the Silverwolves have won 12 straight games, and this senior is a big reason why. Nordberg is 3-1 as a pitcher in region play. When he is not pitching, he plays first or third base and bats cleanup. He is hitting .400 with 10 RBIs and has only struck out an astonishing three times.
"Brock has had several big at bats for us along with quality pitching and defense. He is a great competitor," coach Jay Applegate said. "He really enjoys playing in the big games. He is one of the great leaders on this year's team."
This past week in Riverton's three wins Nordberg was 7-for-10 with four RBIs and picked up one win on the mound.
BRIANNE FABRIZIO, Jordan High School: This senior has played for one of the state's best programs for four years without a lot of recognition.
"She's always kind of been in the shadows of some of the other players, but she's just one outstanding kid," Beetdigger coach Steve Hendricks said of the shortstop. "She gives 110 — even at practice. I never have to ask her to help clean up after practice; she just does it every single day. When she comes out, she's all softball, and she's a great leader."
The student body officer maintains a 3.897 grade-point average and is helping her team with solid play defensively and offensively. Her on-base average is .460, and her batting average is .333.
"She's been a total sweetheart all four years," Hendricks said.
