The Holmen High Scghool softball team played its final regular-season home games on Tuesday, and its senior class made the most of the opportunity.
The Vikings (13-3, 10-1 MVC) clinched a share of the conference championship and have a chance to win the title outright when they travel to play Aquinas on Thursday. They will also likely get to play at home in the WIAA Division 1 postseason, but the seniors had themselves a day to remember during 11-1 and 21-6 victories over Tomah at Viking Elementary.
Holmen played five seniors in the first game, and they went a combined 9-for-15 with seven runs scored in the 11-1 five-inning win. Six seniors played in the 21-6 six-inning victory, and they combined to go 17-for-25 with 13 runs scored in that game.
Seniors went 26-for-40 for a collective .650 batting average against the Timberwolves, scoring 20 runs and driving in 20.
Kendra Leis was a regular in the lineup as a freshman and Morgan Pellowski got on the field, meaning at least part of the group has been there for the duration of a four-year run that has produced a 68-34 overall record and 37-10 mark in the MVC.
Amber Wuensch led the way on Tuesday with a 7-for-8 performance that included a double, four runs scored and four RBI. Pellowski was 6-for-8 with four runs scored and four RBI.
Leis was 5-for-8 with a double, six runs scored and one RBI, while Brooklyn Paulson went 4-for-8 with five RBI and two runs scored. Porath matched Paulson's five RBI and went 3-for-3 with three runs scored.
Kayla Evenson batted once in the second game and drove in a run with a single for her first hit and RBI of the season.
