High School Softball
Some of the top high school softball players in Minnesota are packing up to head to nationals in Tennessee. However, the Minnesota Vortex will be one player short.
A Waconia high school athlete was killed Friday evening in a car crash near Mankato, according to her softball team. Alexia Kretsch, 16, was driving northbound on Highway 169 when a car traveling eastbound on County Road 33 crossed in front of her, according to the Minnesota State Patrol.
Kiela DeVlaeminck can pitch, and her Waconia High School softball team has a chance when she’s on the mound. It’s pretty obvious that she started playing the sport at a young age.
