Jasper ranked in preseason poll

From Local Sources

The Indiana Coaches of Girls Sports Association announced its preseason polls for softball on Wednesday afternoon with one local team receiving a top 10 ranking.

Jasper, who advanced all the way to semistate last season, is ranked No. 6 in the preseason Class 3A poll.

The Wildcats return several key pieces from last year’s team including junior Grace Colvin, who led the team in RBIs last season as well as junior Lexie Jerger and sophomore Hannah Schwenk who led the team in triples and doubles, respectively. Jerger also led the team in stolen bases with 18.

The Cats also return their top two pitchers from last season — Colvin and sophomore Mia Werner.

No other area schools received votes in the polls. The four No. 1 ranked teams are Decatur Central (4A), New Palestine (3A), Speedway (2A) and Pioneer (1A).
