Alex Holtz made her debut as Wyoming Area’s No. 1 pitcher a memorable one as the sophomore smacked three hits and earned the win as the Lady Warriors opened their season with a win over Valley West.
Holtz earned the complete-game win on the mound, and went 3-for-3 at the plate in the 4-1 victory over the Lady Spartans.
For her effort, Alex has been named The Sunday Dispatch Wyoming Area Athlete of the Week for the week April 3-9.
Holtz pitched seven innings of two-hit ball while striking out seven and walking three while allowing the one earned run. She also added three singles in aiding the WA offense.
Posters of Alex can be seen at Januzzi’s Pizza in Wyoming, and Smart Designs and Graphics in Wyoming, sponsors of the Wyoming Area Athlete of the Week.
