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 17th to April 22nd.  The performances will be listed in chronological order.

1. Grace Sheppard, Sr, Rigby

Rigby picked up a 20-9 win over High Country Conference rival Madison on Monday, April 17th.  Sheppard finished 4-for-5 with a triple, five RBIs, and two runs scored.  Shepard also reached base on an error, and a hit-by-pitch, and stole a base for good measure.

2. Liberty Shake, Jr, Mountain View

Shake sizzled in the Mavericks’ 15-5 Southern Idaho Conference win over Boise on Monday, April 17th.  Shake went 2-for-4, with both hits coming via the home run.  She added three RBIs and two runs scored to her totals.

3. Zayne Hall, Jr, Homedale

Hall brought the heavy bat to Monday’s Snake River Valley Conference game with Parma, a 10-0 victory for the Trojans.  Hall went 3-for-5 with two triples, a double, four RBIs and two runs scored. 

4. Katelynn Koyle, Sr, Declo

Declo stung Soda Springs in a non-conference battle on Tuesday, April 18th, by a 23-0 margin.  Koyle was a perfect 4-for-4 with two home runs and four RBIs in the win.

5. Lizzy Tommasini, Sr, Eagle

The Idaho State commit went off in a 26-0 win over Meridian in Southern Idaho Conference play on Friday, April 21st.  Tommasini went 3-for-6 with a home run, two doubles, seven RBIs, and two runs scored.

6. Abbie English, Fr, Cole Valley Christian

English may have gone 1-for-3 in a 20-6 non-conference win over Fruitland, but she made the most of her opportunities.  Her lone hit left the yard for a grand slam, and she also drew a pair of bases-loaded walks, giving her six RBIs on the day.  English also scored two runs.

7. Gretchen Atienza, Sr, Wood River

Wood River survived a 12-11 slugfest with Great Basin Conference rival Minico on Friday, April 21st.  In a game where every run counted, Atienza drove in five as part of a 4-for-6 performance.  The senior drilled two doubles and a triple, stole a base, and scored twice.

8. Addison Clark, Fr, Kimberly

The freshman had a big day in a 16-3 win over Weiser in non-conference action on Friday, April 21st.  Clark was a perfect 4-for-4 with a home run, two doubles, five RBIs and four runs scored.

9. Makiya McPhedran, Sr, Coeur d’Alene

McPhedran delivered two home runs for the Vikings as part of a three-hit day overall in a 14-9 Inland Empire League win over Moscow on Saturday, April 22nd.  McPheran also doubled, drove in four runs and scored three times herself.
