Rehm, Mayberry represent BLHS at MO-KAN
Basehor-Linwood was well represented in the MO-KAN All-Star Softball challenge on Monday, June 7.
Megan Rehm and coach Susan Mayberry represented the Kansas All-Stars, helping the team to a two-game sweep in the best-of-three series.
Kansas cruised to a 13-3 victory in six innings in game one and then held on for a 6-5 decision in game two.
Mayberry, who led BLHS to the Class 4A state championship, was an assistant coach on the Kansas team. This is her fourth time being involved with the game. She has served as head coach twice.
Rehm, a shortstop who batted over .500 during the high school season, played outfield.
“It was a lot of fun, there were a lot of good players who were on the team,” Rehm said. “It was fun to play with them and see how good the players from other schools are. We had a lot of fun.”
She went 2-for-4 at the plate for the day. In the outfield, Rehm mainly fielded ground balls that were hit her direction, though, she didn’t see much action.
She didn’t play as much in the second game, but recorded a base hit in her only at bat.
“She did well,” Mayberry said. “She hit well and got on base.”
The BLHS senior, who won state in her final game as a Bobcat, said it was nice to be honored as a member of the All-Star event.
“Just knowing that coaches consider me good enough to play in the game, all my work paid off to be selected,” Rehm said. “I am not just working for nothing; it is nice they notice that I work hard.”
