Eagle-Tribune Softball All-Stars: Timberlane's Lange named MVP

(Continued)

A free swinger, Lange took only three walks and still struck out just three times all year. She was at her best in the playoffs, batting .585.

Against N.H. Gatorade Player of the Year Katie Kennard of Concord in the championship game, she lashed a single and double and hit the ball hard all three times.

Defensively, Lange possessed one of the strongest arms in the state and attacked ground balls.

“She does so many things, she’ll be hard to replace,” said Timberlane coach Jim Clavette. “She’s a player that any coach would love to have.”

Lange will take her softball skills to Plymouth State next year where she will also play field hockey. She was the area’s leading scorer in field hockey and started for the basketball team.
