Senior Kaitlyn Bohr spent all summer learning how to be a catcher out of necessity for the Bonduel softball program.
After Kaylee Rynish, a four-year starter behind the plate, graduated, the Bears had no one readily available to take over the position.
“I’m hoping that she’ll be able to replace her,” Bonduel head coach Chris Reinke said.
As Bohr learns the position, she will have a strong infield in front of her.
All four infielders, along with pitcher Cameri Gehm, return for the spring season. Seniors Becca Carpenter (first base), Kailee Pedersen (shortstop) and Brittany Wudtke (third base) are joined by junior Brynn Reinke (second base).
The team’s seven seniors, along with Reinke, have been playing together for nearly a decade, which Pedersen hopes can help alleviate any issues of going through slumps.
