According to Southern Door softball coach Courtney Renard, Lexi Wery’s work to start the state semifinal game last Friday at Goodman Diamond in Madison began in the offseason. Wery worked hard to get stronger and work on her location prior to this year’s campaign. In the playoffs, she shut out two teams before giving up three runs (one earned) in Friday’s 3-0 loss to Campbellsport in the state semifinal game. Playing softball since she was eight years old, the state semifinal was the culmination of a lifetime of memories with many of her teammates. Speaking before the state tournament, Wery reflected on her favorite thing about softball.
Wery will have more opportunities to make memories in Madison this fall when she attends the University of Wisconsin to study molecular biology where she hopes to begin a career in cancer research.
