    Gladbrook Reinbeck Softball Preview

    The Gladbrook Reinbeck softball team went 7-18 last year losing to Colfax Mingo in Regional play 5 to 0. The Rebels will have to replace some key seniors this year.

    Key departures offensively include Hayley Weber who batted 319 with a home run and 14 RBIS. Madison White hit 242 with 13 RBIS, and Jordan Lebarge hit 200 with 6 RBIS.

    Key departures pitching wise Madison White who made 20 starts as a senior going 6-15 in 98.1 innings with a 3.77 earned run average. White was the rebels main pitchers so they will be searching for  some pitching.

    Key players returning offensively Megan Swanson batted 319 with 4 RBIS, 4 2B and a Triple. Marissa Berendes batted 290 with 5 RBIS as a Junior. Sasha Nagle hit 230 and Taylor Gienger batted 204. The Rebels will be looking for more offensive production this year as they scored 3.5 runs per game a year ago.

    Key pitching returning doesn’t have  a lot of experience. Madison White was the main pitcher a year ago starting 20 games. Rachel Cooley made 2 starts as a Freshman going 0-2 with 7.00 earned run average in 8 innings. Sasha Nagle also made 2 starts pitching just 4.1 innings with a 14.54 earned run average.

    The Rebels do have some nice offensive weapons back in Swanson and Berendes. A big question mark will be their pitching as the only two returning with experience pitched just 12. 1 innings a year ago. Gladbrook Reinbeck opens up the season June 1st at AGWSR
