A strong group of returning players and an upset victory in the playoffs last spring has the Marshfield softball team thinking big coming into the 2017 season.

The Tigers won a WIAA Division 1 regional title last season with an upset victory at Chippewa Falls and finished 15-13 overall after losing 2-1 in the sectional semifinals to Hudson.

First-team all-Wisconsin Valley Conference outfielder Jenna Jakobi and second-team pick Megan Donahue, the team’s main pitcher, are among those returning to the starting lineup for the Tigers, who are off to a 6-1 start this season.

Jakobi, a sophomore, hit .424 with 30 runs scored and seven outfield assists last year, while Donahue, a junior, smacked 12 home runs, had 47 RBIs and totaled 243 strikeouts in 141 1/3 innings on the mound.

Also back are junior catcher Emily Draeger, senior third baseman Melissa Roberts, junior first baseman Kaitlyn Konrardy, junior infielder Morgan Nordbeck, and sophomore outfielders Rhiannon Corozolla and Maddie Mews.

“We have high expectations this year with a good returning core group of players coming back,” second-year Marshfield coach Daniel Costa said. “We expect to compete with the best teams in our conference for a conference title.”

Freshman Jordan Pretsch, and juniors Jasmine Fredrick and Madison Derus are among those that will also compete for playing time.

Marshfield’s lone loss this season came to defending conference and WIAA Division 1 state champion Stevens Point 4-1 on April 6.

After finishing fourth in the Wisconsin Valley Conference last season (7-5), Marshfield is primed to make a run toward a top spot.

“With so many of our conference teams winning playoff games and advancing last year, the fact that we have such a strong conference can only help us in the long run come playoff time,” Costa said. “After getting a small taste of success in our mouths with a regional championship at Chippewa Falls last year, we are eager and hungry to try to make an even deeper run into the playoffs this year.”

Tiff threw another good game and our defense was very solid. Getting 17 hits off of a pretty good pitcher is pretty tough, but we have to find a way to limit our strikeouts, as we had 13 in a five-inning game.”

For the second season in a row, the Marshfield High School baseball team will have a first-time head coach.

Jon Bauer replaces Shane Freitag as the Tigers’ manager and inherits a team that finished 13-13 overall and 6-6 in the Wisconsin Valley Conference.

Marshfield won its playoff opener before losing in a WIAA Division 1 regional final to Eau Claire North last spring.

After a few weeks of practice, the Tigers are scheduled to open their season with a nonconference doubleheader Thursday against Eau Claire North at Jack Hackman Field.

Bauer said he has been impressed with what he has seen so far this spring.

“I really like our work ethic,” Bauer said. “I think we’ll have enough good pitching necessary to compete with the new pitch count limits. Our hitting and fielding, hopefully, will be strengths as well.”

The WIAA passed a rule last summer that states a pitcher can throw up to 100 pitches in a day. Three days rest are then required before the player may pitch again. Pitchers who throw 1-30 pitches in a day will not require any rest; 31-49 pitches thrown requires one day rest; 50-75 mandates two days rest; and 76-100 pitches requires three days off before returning the mound.

Seniors Connor Jasurda, Jake Brueggen and Hunter Korger are expected to make up the starting pitching rotation, and Bauer said he will determine the rest as the season moves forward.

Seniors Aaron Braun and Logan Jakobi, juniors Branden Montalvo, Connor Berry, Austin Palacek, Tyler Spaeth, Mitch Wilhelm, and Jared Johnsrud, and sophomore Ryan Krueger will also compete for mound time for the Tigers.

Senior Paul Maguire will see time at catcher and in the outfield for the Tigers are earning first-team all-Wisconsin Valley Conference honors in 2016 as a utility player. He hit .395 with 11 RBIs in conference play a year ago.

Senior outfielder Braden Bohman is also back for his third year on the varsity. He and Brueggen were honorable mention all-conference selections. Bohman hit .326 with 12 runs scored and five stolen bases, and Brueggen was 2-2 with a 4.03 earned-run average in Valley action.

Senior Jared Klein is also back for his third year on the varsity and will catch and play first base.

“Our expectations are to show up, show that we can play, show that we can improve as the season progresses, and show that we can be good teammates,” Bauer said. “I really like the effort this group demonstrates in practice every day.”
