Kyrin Enneking is Athlete of the Month for May. Ky is a senior that bats clean up and plays 3rd base for the softball team. She has made incredible plays all season at 3rd, but really turned it up during the postseason. She made a number of plays at 3rd during the first tournament game. However, it was during the second round game at Mt. Vernon where Ky showed off the leather. She made 5 incredible plays to keep Darby close against a very good team. The Mt. Vernon coach even made multiple comments about her play. Kyrin is also a leader off the field maintaining a GPA over 4.0. Congrats Ky on being named Athlete of the Month.
