(Festus) Jefferson Blue Jays softball pitcher Cami Menke has been hoping there would come a moment where it all came together.
It seems like that moment has come, as she has earned Applebee’s of Farmington Athlete of the Week.
Menke swatted 3 home runs and had 10 total hits last week.
She says she thought something was coming with the bat, she just wasn’t sure how big.
Menke also earned a pitching win in the skid-stopping victory over Fredericktown.
But when it comes to hitting, she points to her all-state teammate Catryn Cattoor as her biggest motivator.
Menke finished with 9 runs batted in last week, bringing her season totals to a .500 batting average, 5 homers and 22 RBI.
As Athlete of the Week, she receives a T-shirt, a certificate and a coupon for good one entree at Applebee’s in Farmington.
