WISCONSIN DELLS — It was a successful outing for recent Glenwood City graduate Maggie Wallin when she recently participated in the 2019 Wisconsin Fastpitch Softball Coaches Association’s (WFSCA) State All Star game held at the Woodside Sports Complex in Wisconsin Dells.
After a day of practice on Monday, June 17, the All Star teams, featuring the top senior players in the state of Wisconsin hit the fields Tuesday, June 18 for a series of games. The all star participants were placed into three divisions – Division 1, Division 2/3 and Division 4/5 – based on the division their respective schools played in during this year’s WIAA tournament. There were six teams in each division.
Maggie Wallin, who was named this year’s Dunn-St. Croix softball player of the year, played on the Division 4/5 Green Team. Wallin pitched all seven innings of the first game on June 18, and played at first and third during the second game.
In Tuesday’s, Wallin pitched a no-hitter as she struck out 19 batters and walked only one to lead her Green Team to a 2-0 victory over the Gray Team.
“It was so much fun,” Wallin stated.
During the second game, she was able to switch her positions up as she played first and third, but the squad suffered a loss to the Black team.
“She threw a complete no-hitter in the first game,” said Toppers’ head coach Matthew Schutz. “Pretty impressive.”
Wallin went two-for-three at the plate in the second game with a walk and a two-run home run over the fence, for her sixth home run of her high school career.
Maggie finished her senior season with some mighty impressive statistics. Wallin tallied 282 strikeouts in the 2019 season, including the 19 from game one of the All Star competition, and allowed only 58 walks in 137 and two-thirds innings pitched.
The results proved that all of her hard work in the past off season, softball clubs, and determination paid off for the Hilltopper graduate.
Wallin was not the only Dunn-St. Croix player on the Green Team. Joining her were Kali Brathol of Elmwood/Plum City, Rian Evans of Mondovi and Erin Seifert and Maci Luff, both of Pepin/Alma.
Wallin appreciated the support she received from area businesses and individuals that made her All Star trip possible which included: Matthew Schutz, Karen and Anna Blanford from Elmwood, Ashleson Dental of Glenwood City, Hilltopper Softball, and most of all her parents and brother, Henry, Darwin and Sue.
