BERLIN CENTER OH- Western Reserve is known for their offense this year that is for sure. The Blue Devils average over 14 runs per game, and have plenty of hitters hitting over .400. However, don’t make that trick you into thinking they don’t have a lockdown pitcher in the circle. Western Reserve has been able to run rule a ton of opponents because their offense would blast their way to a high score, while Hannah Heath would keep the opposing offense down. Heath has been an awesome senior leader for Western Reserve setting the tone in the circle. She has been an incredible role model for the younger players on the team, and while she is making a huge impact this season, she is also going to have an impact on this program for years to come. Her competitive nature elevates the standard of everyone around her. It’s a big reason why Western Reserve earned a one seed in the district tournament.
Heath this season has been dynamite in the circle. In 54.0 IP she has collected an ERA of 2.30. She has struck out 43 hitters. One of the most impressive numbers in her pitching staff is 62 runners left on base. It shows that Heath is very good at getting out of jams with runners on base. Heath also leads the offense with a .679. She has knocked in 25 RBI and scored 38 runs. She has only struck out 4 times all season.
Heath took the time to chat with YSN’s Anthony Hartwig about her senior season. They talk about going on to the next level to play in Hiram, how she wants to cap off her senior season, and so much more. Check out the latest Western Reserve Softball Player Profile exclusively on YSN!
