Former Wilmot softball standout Taylor Danielson has been in the middle of the action since her first day with NCAA Division II Indianapolis.

And her sophomore year has been no different.

Danielson has followed up a stellar freshman year with the Greyhounds with another solid campaign as a sophomore as the college postseason quickly approaches.

In 46 games, all starts, Danielson is batting .281 (34-for-121), with 31 runs scored, five doubles, two triples, three home runs, 24 RBI and is 9-for-12 in stolen-base attempts.

As a freshman, Danielson started all of the Greyhounds’ 59 games at five different positions — 37 in left field, four in right field, four at catcher, four at designated player and one at second base.

Last season, she led the team in doubles (11) and was second in both batting average (.311) and slugging percentage (.534).

Indianapolis garnered some national recognition this past week, as the Greyhounds, who entered play this week at 36-10 overall, are ranked ninth in the latest National Fastpitch Coaches Association Division II poll.

In the first regional ranking of the season, the Greyhounds are ranked second.

Konwent still going

The comeback season for former Central star Kayla Konwent continues for the Wisconsin softball team.

Heading into a three-game home series this weekend against Indiana, Konwent leads the Badgers in a number of offensive categories.

Konwent, who has started all of the Badgers’ 38 games, is first in batting average .483 (56-for-116), with team-highs in doubles (14), home runs (13), RBI (43), slugging percentage (.957) and OPS (1.537). She also has 29 runs scored and a triple.

Wisconsin enters the weekend at 30-8 overall and 7-5 in the Big 10. The Badgers lost both games of a doubleheader at Northwestern last weekend, but Konwent finished the twinbill at 3-for-7, with two runs scored and three RBI.

Dummer at Moorhead

Former Tremper standout Emma Dummer has enjoyed a solid junior campaign for NCAA Division II Minnesota State-Moorhead.

Dummer, a 2016 Tremper graduate, is batting .311 (38-for-122), with 19 runs scored, 13 doubles, six home runs and 23 RBI in 36 starts.

In early April, she was named the school’s Athlete of the Week after she batted .333 with three home runs and seven RBI, including a walk-off home run in a 10-9 win over Upper Iowa.

Moorhead entered play this week at 12-25 overall.

Felton excels

Former Shoreland Lutheran standout Abbie Felton is putting together another solid track and field season for Division III UW-Whitewater.

At UW-Platteville earlier this week, Felton finished sixth in the 200 (25.97) and was part of the fourth-place 400-meter relay team (49.8).

Competing at Whitewater’s Rex Foster Twilight, Felton made her collegiate debut in the 800 — and won the event with a first-place time of 2:19.04. She also was part of the second-place 400-relay team (49.45).

Prior to the start of the outdoor season, the junior closed out the indoor schedule with an 11th-place overall finish in the 400 (57.71) at the Division III National Meet.

Felton is a six-time Division III All-American, a three-time Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference champion and a nine-time All-WIAC selection. She’s also part of Whitewater school records in the indoor 1,600-meter relay, the outdoor 1,600-meter relay and the 400-relay.

Seymour at Bradley

Former Bradford standout Scott Seymour is enjoying a solid junior season with the NCAA Division I Bradley men’s track and field team.

Competing in the 800 at last Saturday’s Illini Twilight, Seymour finished third in 1:50.99.

During the indoor season, Seymour landed on several of the Braves’ top efforts in four different events.

In the 600, he posted a personal-best time of 1:22.74. He also had times of 1:51.59 in the 800 and was part of the 1,600-meter relay team that finished in 3:22.4 and the 3,200-relay team that finished in 7:50.58.

In the fall, Seymour competed in four men’s cross country meets and posted a career-best time in the 8K of 26:31.13 at the Bradley Pink Classic.

Croeker at Marian

Former Bradford softball standout Katy Croeker is among the team leaders this spring at Marian in Fond du Lac.

Through 24 games, the sophomore third baseman is batting .353 (24-for-68), with four doubles, a triple, two home runs and 15 RBI.

Marian entered play this week at 15-11 overall.
