Hailey Rosonke

Even in a shortened season, Hailey Rosonke showed her power at the bat. The eighth grader tied the school record of home runs in a season with three. The team also beat the mark with six overall.

With just two games left before the Class 2A Regional Tournament, South Hardin had to call their season when a player tested positive for COVID-19. The Tigers were not alone in having to make the difficult decision – with many squads in the same boat.

Even though SH only played 11 games this summer it was an important year as the program continues to make strides under second-year head coach Becky Rosonke.

Josie Raska

Center fielder Josie Raska was one of three fielders without any errors this season. Offensively, she has always been known for her speed. The junior smacked her first career home run and tallied 12 RBI this year. 

Emma Spieker

Emma Spieker was one of the most improved players this season. She struggled last year at the bat, but moved from the bottom to the top of the batting order and finished with a .231 batting average.
