Berks Catholic softball out to impressive start

Published On: Apr 10 2014 06:25:28 PM EDT

The Saints have been impressive early in the season. They say the offense has to stay hot in order for them to keep competing.


Berks Catholic is out to a perfect 4-0 start and looks to be a player in the Berks II race.

The Saints have three shutouts on the young season and have outscored opponents 46-6.

Led by six returning starters, especially shortstop Brooke Wensel, the Saints have taken plenty of confidence from their strong early play.

If the offense can stay consistent, B.C. likes their chances to stay in the hunt.

Along with the veterans, Courtney Wensel has recovered from a torn ACL and figures to be the Saints' ace. Katrina Balatgek, an all-county basketball player, will also play for the team. B.C. also has a strong freshman class that should help the team compete this year.
