ALPENA, Mich. — The Lady Lumberjacks signed Big Rapids center fielder Annah Folkema to their lineup. The three-year varsity Cardinal relies on her speed in chasing pop us and her ability to throw out base runners from deep.
“She was amazing around the bases with a lot of speed,” said two-year ACC Softball Head Coach Christin Sobeck. “She really took command in the outfield.”
Folkema ended her senior season first team all-district with a .909 percent fielding average and .325 batting average. She also led Big Rapids in runs scored.
The former Cardinal plays softball all year long between training and summer travel ball with Quad City Storm. Now she is very excited to contribute to the Lumberjacks.
“I can slap hit left-handed, hit right-handed and regular hit left-handed,” said Folkema. “I think I can come in with some big hits or small hits to move runners.”
Folkema will follow in her brothers footsteps. Brennan played baseball at Mott Community College.
