Averill Park Star Earns Athlete of the Week
We're getting ready for sectionals in baseball, softball, and lacrosse, and when you head toward playoff time, you always see great performances on the field.
With that said, we didn't see a better week across Section II than the one we got from Averill Park senior softball player Caraline Wood.
In four games for the Warriors, she hit a whopping .733 with five home runs, nine RBIs and nine runs scored.
She had a two-homer game against Colonie, including a walk-off three-run shot in the bottom of the 10th inning.
But she wasn't done. She also toes the circle, pitching all 10 innings against Colonie. And then she threw a three-hitter against Cohoes.
The senior will be playing at WPI next season.
Get to know Caraline:
Favorite subject in school: Biology
Favorite movie: The Blind Side
Favorite musical artist: Ed Sheeran
Favorite athlete: Jason Varitek
Favorite thing about playing for AP: My teammates, I have played with most of these girls all of my life and I wouldn't want it any other way. I also love the high level of play within the Suburban Council.
Hobby outside of softball: Traveling to new places and listening to country music because I was born in Nashville.
