Senior Spotlight: Frankfort’s Myers Reflects on Record-Setting Softball Career
MISportsNow is putting the spotlight on northern Michigan high school senior student-athletes who had their seasons cut short due to the coronavirus pandemic.
FRANKFORT – Frankfort senior Haley Myers has her name etched throughout her school’s softball program record book and the state’s.
The Aquinas College softball commit owns Frankfort’s careers doubles record and the record for most runs in a single season.
Prior to the cancellation of the 2020 spring season due to the coronavirus pandemic, Myers had her sights set on breaking the school’s career home run record. She was eight home runs shy of setting that mark.
Myers has plenty of great memories and records during her three-year prep career, but her favorite memories are those of Frankfort’s postseason run during her sophomore season in 2018. The Panthers edged perennial state power Holton, 6-5, in a Division 4 regional final before dropping a thrilling 1-0 contest to eventual state runner-up Coleman in a quarterfinal.
“I think our regional games my sophomore year was definitely the most exciting,” she said. “I’m super proud to be a part of that team. That was super exciting to be with the seniors at that time. I think I’m being so close to breaking records this year, and to not have the opportunity even to try is what it kind of sucks about this season.”
Following college, Myers plans to enter the health care industry.
