DeForest senior catcher Cammi Riemer proved to be not only one of the best players on the Norski roster, but one of the best players in Wisconsin. After leading the Norskies to a sixth-straight Badger North Conference title, she was named to the Wisconsin Fastpitch Softball Coaches Association all-state team.

Riemer was not the only Norski recognized, as senior pitcher Taylor Shaw was named honorable mention.

Shaw was 15-3 in the pitcher’s circle with a 1.809 earned run average, 102 strikeouts and 54 walks. At the plate, she batted .360 with 24 RBIs, five doubles and four runs.

Before earning all-state honors, Riemer and Shaw were both named All-District first team.

The Norskies also had sophomore Jordan Marty and junior Taylor Tschumper earn honorable mention All-District.

Marty hit .474 with 42 RBIs, 28 runs, 14 doubles and four home runs, while Tschumper batted .393 with 21 RBIs, 19 runs, eight doubles and a triple.

Sun Prairie’s Maddie Gardner and Oshkosh North’s Sydney Supple were named the Division 1 Players of the Year. Also winning Player of the Year honors were Seymour’s Chloe Evans (Division 2), Poynette’s Casey Fountain (Division 3), Horicon’s Allison Tillema (Division 4) and Belmont’s Sadie Willborn (Division 5).
