There were 3,933 total votes this week. Dietz topped all vote getters with 1,298 votes. Cedar-Grove Belgium's Cora Erickson came in second with 914 votes.
Dietz was incredible at the plate for the Reedsburg softball team this past week. In a 21-6 victory over Monroe, the senior slugger did something that is very rare in softball/baseball, she hit for the cycle. Dietz went five for six from the plate with six RBIs and three runs scored in her historic game. She followed that up going two for two with 3 RBIs, 2 runs scored and a walk in an 8-1 win over Mount Horeb. Dietz then went five for six in a pair of losses for the Beavers. She hit two home runs in each of the losses and had six RBIs and five runs scored.
In three games this week, Dietz has added a home run and four RBIs to her season tally for the Beavers.
