third was outfielder Emily Groarke, who came over after playing the last two seasons at Dock. Slotting in as the Knights’ leadoff hitter and right fielder, Groarke reached base consistently and made a smooth transition from Bicentennial Athletic League to SOL play, earning first-team SOL Continental honors.
Lansdale Catholic saw lineup changes throughout the season but by the end of the year, junior outfielder Lauren Crim had cemented herself at the top of the order. Crim gave LC plenty of quality at-bats, posting a solid average and ranking as one of the team leaders in hits and runs scored.
Things came together for Pennridge late as the Rams won six of seven to close the regular season and earn a playoff bid. Things came together all season for sophomore shortstop Kiley Watson all season however, with the rangy defender also fitting in at the top of the Pennridge lineup. A good hitter and aggressive runner, Watson was on base plenty for the bats that followed her in the order.
