MAPLE CITY - Olivia Mikowski etched her name in Glen Lake’s softball record books on Friday, surpassing Katelynn Schaub as the school’s all-time home run leader, as the Lakers earned a pair of victories over Central Lake, 19-0 and 15-4.
Mikowski reached the mark in the fourth inning of the second game, smashing a pitch deep to the fence in center field. She raced around the bases for an inside-the-park home run to set the new record with 14 career home runs, all the more impressive because she was unable to play in her freshman season due to the Covid-19 Pandemic’s cancelation of spring sports.
Shea Staley also notched an inside-the-park home run for the Lakers in the second game of the doubleheader.
Glen Lake (2-2) hosts Frankfort on Tuesday afternoon. Central Lake (0-4) returns home to take on Mancelona in their Ski Valley Conference opener.
