Jefferson’s Menke named Applebee’s of Farmington Athlete of the Week

(Festus) Jefferson Blue Jays junior Cami Menke has been named the Applebee’s of Farmington Athlete of the Week.

Menke was an absolute force on the softball diamond last week, finishing with 10 hits in 13 at-bats, 3 home runs, a double and 9 runs batted in.

She also got a pitching win where she threw 5 innings against Fredericktown and allowed no earned runs.

Blue Jays head coach Robert Kuehnle says Menke stepped up in a big way.

The victory over Fredericktown snapped an 8-game losing streak for the Blue Jays, who are now 6-10.

In addition to being named Athlete of the Week, Menke will receive a T-shirt, a certificate and a coupon good for a free entree at Applebee’s in Farmington.
