A dedicated ESPNHS team, headed by Boston-based writer and editor Ben Rohrbach, managed the network’s Gatorade Softball Player of the Year selection process resulting in state winners based on the program’s three pillars: athletic production and impact in the 2011-12 season, high academic achievement and exemplary personal character.

WASHINGTON WINNER: Madi Schreyer

THE BASICS

School: Woodinville (Wash.)

Grade: Junior

Position: Pitcher

Height: 5-foot-11

THE PILLARS

Athletic achievement: Schreyer led the Falcons (26-0) to the Class 4A state championship this past season. She posted a 21-0 record with a 0.28 ERA and 189 strikeouts in 123 innings pitched.

A member of the Canadian Junior National Team, Schreyer allowed 28 hits and walked 33 batters, holding opponents to a .088 batting average.

In the state final, she gave up three hits and struck out eight in a 6-0 win over defending champion Walla Walla (Wash.).

Academic excellence:

Schreyer has maintained a 3.91 GPA in the classroom.

Exemplary character:

She has volunteered locally as an elementary school teaching assistant, a peer mentor/tutor and as a youth softball coach.

THE PRAISE

“Madi Schreyer is overpowering on the mound physically as well as mentally,” said Jim Magnuson, head coach of rival Issaquah (Wash.). “There is no one that has a greater impact on the game.”

THE FUTURE: Schreyer has made a verbal commitment to attend Stanford University on an athletic scholarship beginning in the fall of 2013.
