Madison College softball team gets 30-win season

The Madison College softball team may not have won the conference title this year, but WolfPack in the running for the second season in a row.

A pair of losses to Rock Valley College during a recent doubleheader left Madison College in second place in the North Central Community College Conference, the same spot as a year ago.

Madison College has now posted back-to-back 30 win seasons after finishing below .500 the seven previous years.

As it prepares for post-season play, Madison College hopes its 33-20 regular season record will give it some momentum.

Madison College has been led this season by a strong offense. The team batting average is a whopping .348 and averages almost seven runs a game.

Brooke Heck, Breanna Seeber and Breanna Bolling have led the team offensively.

Heck averages .480 with 25 doubles, two home runs and 65 RBIs. Seeber averages .443 and has scored a team-high 53 runs. Bolling is hitting .433 with 46 runs scored and three triples. In addition, Cheyenne Holmes hits .396, but leads the team with seven home runs.

Jenalee Wilson and Hannah Jensen have been the team’s top two pitchers.

Wilson has an 18-6 record and 2.32 ERA. She has struck out 90 batters in 139 innings. Jensen has a 10-10 record and a 4.21 ERA. She has struck out 73 batters in 124 innings.

Madison College enters the tournament having won five of its last six games.
