Experience is paying off for Lynncville-Sully junior catcher Becca Vos. As a sophomore a year ago Vos was the Hawk’s starting catcher but rarely came to the plate as coach Stacey Alberts used a designated hitter.

Vos says Alberts wanted her to focus on catching and in the offseason she focused on hitting so she could be good on both sides of the field. This season Vos is hitting better than .430. She leads in doubles and is second in home runs for a team that is ranked fifth in class 1A.

“I think that it was probably a good idea that I was working on catching, because I was young,” Vos says. Vos says he confidence at the plate soared after some early season success. She says she hit well in the very first game and has had confidence to go to the plate each time.

Vos says as a team Lynnville-Sully has high expectations and is a team with great chemistry on and off the field. She says they have team nights where they get together and they stay close friends outside of softball.

Lynnville-Sully returns to action on Friday with a visit to Keota.
