WV, Greenfield ‘stars’ to shine once more

Posted: Tuesday, June 4, 2013 12:00 pm

Before they head their separate ways, three Westview softball players and a pair of baseball players from Greenfield will be together one last time.
The West Tennessee softball and baseball all-star games will be played this afternoon in Jackson, the softball game slated for 4 p.m. at Complex D of the West Tennessee Healthcare Sportsplex and the baseball game to follow at 6 p.m. at The Ballpark in Jackson, located adjacent to the Sportsplex.
Meagan Prince and Alex Hughey will be teammates one more time as they will play for the Blue team under head coach Michael Winders. Their Lady Charger partner, Kayla Guthrie, will be in the other dugout playing for the Gold team under skipper Larry Giraldi.
In the baseball game, Hunter Crouse and Tony Robinson will play for the Gray team of Rusty Thompson as they take on J.D. Flowers’ Red team at the home of the Jackson Generals.
Prince will head off to Lexington, Ky., by way of Jackson as the University of Kentucky signee will get another chance to show off her arm at the prep level.
In her senior year, Prince posted a 20-3 record in helping the Lady Chargers win the District 13AA Tournament and advance to the Region 7AA event. She had a microscopic 0.51 earned run average, allowing only 11 earned runs.
Prince struck out 270 batters, walked only 21 and allowed just 63 hits this past season.
She improved her skills with the bat as well, batting .432 with a .447 on-base percentage and a .527 slugging percentage. Prince led the team with seven doubles among her 32 hits and drove in 10 runs.
Guthrie topped the team at the plate, posting team-highs in batting average at .459, hits with 51 and runs with 30.
She also had a .464 on-base percentage and a .532 slugging percentage while driving in 11 runs.
Hughey was solid at the plate as well with a .314 batting average, .422 on-base percentage and .407 slugging percentage. She finished the season with 27 hits, including six doubles, and scored 18 runs while driving in 14 more.
Greenfield’s Robinson and Crouse were part of another solid Yellowjackets’ team that posted a 17-10 record.
Robinson, headed to Bethel on a golf scholarship, led the team with a .392 batting average while his 31 hits also topped the squad statistically.
He had a .473 on-base percentage and .570 slugging percentage this past season, counting six doubles, two home runs and a triple among his totals.
Robinson was also 13-for-13 on stolen bases and, in the field, had 60 put-outs and 10 assists without an error.
Crouse was just as productive, his 33 runs scored and nine doubles leading the team. He batted .380 with 27 hits, 16 RBI and a triple. Crouse drew 18 walks, leading the team, and was 16-for-17 on stolen bases.
He posted a .938 fielding percentage with 49 assists and 26 put-outs.
