It's time for another edition of Heavy Hitters.  Every Monday, we'll recap the nine most scintillating hitting performances from the past week of competition.

Why nine?  Because there's nine batters in the lineup.

I should note that these are single-game performances only.  I don't have the math skills to pull off calculating weekly totals.

With that said, here's our list of Idaho softball's Heavy Hitters, from the week of April 10th to April 15th.  The performances will be listed in chronological order.

1. Marissa Puga, Sr, Wilder

Puga was busy in Wilder’s 28-1 victory over Notus in Western Idaho Conference action on Monday, April 10th.  In five trips to the plate, the senior collected two triples, a double, and was hit by a pitch.  She drove in three runs and scored three times herself.

2. Rylee Bake, Jr, Fruitland

It didn’t take long for Bake to get, well, baking in Fruitland’s 10-7 win over Payette in Snake River Valley Conference play on Monday, April 10th.  Bake was responsible for six of the Grizzlies’ ten total runs.  She went 2-for-4 with a double, a triple, five RBIs and a run scored.

3. Grendel Spong, Sr, Wood River

The Wolverines defeated Canyon Ridge 12-4 in Great Basin Conference play on Tuesday, April 11th.  Spong led the way with a 2-for-4 night at the plate.  Both of Spong’s hits were home runs, and she added four RBIs to her total as well.

4. Blanca Mazo, Sr, North Fremont

Mazo went a perfect 4-for-4 with six RBIs, as North Fremont defeated Firth in Nuclear Conference action on Tuesday, April 11th, by a score of 14-9.

5. Carmindy Johnson, So, West Jefferson

The Panthers dispatched Challis-Mackay in a Nuclear Conference game on Tuesday, April 11th by a 17-0 margin.  While we could nominate Johnson and fellow pitcher Jordyn Torgerson for our Primetime Pitchers list for throwing a combined no-hitter, it came in just three innings of work, so instead, we’ll focus on Johnson’s day at the plate.  The sophomore went 2-for-3 with five RBIs, three runs scored, and two stolen bases.  She also reached base on a fielding error.

6. Natalie Miklancic, So, Middleton

Miklancic broke through in a big way on Tuesday, April 11th, as the Vikings outlasted Rocky Mountain 13-8 in a battle of Southern Idaho Conference powers.  Miklancic went 4-for-5 with a home run, five RBIs, and three runs scored. 

7. Lola Crosby, So, Cole Valley Christian

The Chargers earned a narrow 9-8 non-conference win over Weiser on Thursday, April 13th, and Crosby was a big reason why.  The sophomore finished 3-for-4 with two doubles and five RBIs.  Her fifth and final RBI served as the game-winner in the bottom of the seventh inning, as Cole Valley Christian walked off the Wolverines.

8. Haylie Angell, Sr, South Fremont

Angell was on fire in the Cougars’ 20-6 win over Teton in Mountain Rivers Conference play on Friday, April 14th.  Angell was 4-for-5 with two home runs, a triple and a single.  She drove in five runs while scoring three times herself.  And she also reached base on an error, so all five trips to the plate resulted in Angell reaching base.

9. Aly Marion, Jr, Nampa Christian

Nampa Christian battled West Side in a matchup of 2A powers on Saturday, April 15th at the Glenns Ferry Tournament, with the Trojans earning an 11-1 victory.  Marion powered the Nampa Christian offense, finishing 2-for-4 with a home run, a double, five RBIs, and a run scored.
