Troy Athens’ Haley Zemmer: April 16-21 Patch Athlete of the Week
Red Hawks starting pitcher tops Berkley’s Ian Kobernick in a competitive week of voting.
Zemmer, who netted 818 votes, edged out Berkley baseball player Ian Kobernick, who had 32 percent of the votes (559 votes) in a week of unscientific polling among Patch readers.
Zemmer won three games last week for the Athens varsity softball team. She pitched complete games in both games of a doubleheader against Birmingham Groves on Wednesday. She won both, striking out 19 batters over two games.
At the plate, she had an RBI double in the first game. Friday, in a rain-shortened 9-0 win over Stoney Creek, Zemmer struck out nine batters in five scoreless innings.
Other poll results:
Ian Kobernick – Berkley High School (baseball): Ian Kobernick did a little bit of everything for the Berkley High School baseball team last week. He was 9-for-12 with seven RBIs and four steals. He also picked up a win on the mound against Southfield.
Lexie Brisson-Fast – Ferndale High School (soccer): Lexie Brisson-Fast scored four goals in an 8-0 mercy rule victory over Pontiac on Tuesday. The senior came back Thursday with all four of her team’s goals in a 4-4 tie against Farmington.
