State Champs! top 100 Michigan softball players for 2019

By: Matthew B. Mowery, April 30, 2019, 12:40 am

1 HANNAH CADY

High school: Clarkston

Position: C (INF)

Graduation year: 2020

Honors: First-team D1 all-state (2018)

College: Northwestern

 

There could not be bigger shoes to fill than when you have to come in and replace a high school All-American, one that’s gone on to the pre-eminent college program in your region. That was the case when Hannah Cady stepped onto Clarkston’s campus as a freshman, following in the footsteps of University of Michigan signee Abby Skvarce. The result? Nobody really noticed that there was a tremendous difference, as Cady earned first-team Division 1 all-state honors each of her first two seasons in a Clarkston uniform, adding second-team All-American honors by Extra Inning Softball, and third-team All-American honors from the NFCA last year. Coach Don Peters, who has said Cady is one of the best he’s ever coached, nicknamed the No. 6-wearing catcher “Kaline.” The Detroit Tigers’ Hall of Fame outfielder would certainly be envious of the stats that Clarkston’s No. 2 hitter put up last year: .577 average, .616 on-base percentage, .911 slugging percentage and an OPS (on-base, plus slugging) of 1.527. Cady hit eight home runs as a sophomore, as part of her 23 extra-base hits, driving in 52 runs and scoring 27. The Wolves have gone 72-13 in the first two seasons with Cady, Sierra Kersten and Abbey Tolmie as mainstays in the lineup. 

Cady started the season with a sore rotator cuff in her throwing shoulder, limiting her to designated player duties.

 

2 LAUREN ESMAN

High school: Richland Gull Lake

Position: P/1B

Graduation year: 2019

Honors: First-team D1 all-state (2018)

College: Michigan

 

Esman came into her senior season ranked the No. 66 recruit in the 2019 class by Softball America. After hitting .675 with 91 RBI and a school-record 21 home runs as a sophomore, Esman committed to Michigan, which was recruiting her for her power, with the idea that she might pitch for the Wolverines down the road, too. Last year, her offensive numbers — .587 average, eight home runs, 44 RBI — were more mortal, while her pitching numbers got better, as she went 22-6 with a 1.13 ERA in 149.2 innings pitched, striking out 235 hitters in helping lead Gull Lake back to the regional finals. Esman was first-team all-state as a sophomore (utility) and junior (pitcher), earning third-team All-American honors from NFCA last season.

 

3 GABI SALO

High school: Escanaba

Position: P/1B

Graduation year: 2020

Honors: First-team D2 all-state (2018)

College: Wisconsin

 

After the Eskymos fell short in two straight semifinals appearances, Salo got them over the hump as a sophomore, continuing her torrid postseason pace, posting shutouts in the semifinals and finals to give her five in the playoffs (ERA: 0.30) and 83 strikeouts to go with just two walks. After a freshman season in which she went 18-3 with 185 strikeouts in 115.2 innings pitched, Salo went 21-3 as a sophomore with seven no-hitters and two perfect games, allowing just nine earned runs (ERA of 0.40) all season, striking out 287 and walking 13. A first-team all-stater each of her first two seasons, Salo is committed to pitching at Wisconsin. 

 

4 BROOKE NADOLNY

High school: L’Anse Creuse

Position: P/SS

Graduation year: 2019

Honors: First-team D1 all-state (2018)

College: Wayne State

 

Nadolny came into the season needing just two home runs to become the state’s all-time leader in bombs hit, and through the first few weeks of the season has put herself within hailing distance of the national record (73). But she’s not merely a slugger, playing short for the Lancers, and taking over the role as the team’s No. 1 pitcher this season. Coach Lisa Downey: “She’s like the complete package. She pitches, plays shortstop, she’s a great fielder, she hits line-drive base hits, she runs the bases well, she’s got power. Major League Baseball, when you’re looking at drafts, she’s a five-tool player.”

 

5 TESSA NUSS

High school: Lake Orion

Position: OF

Graduation year: 2019

Honors: First-team D1 all-state (2018)

College: Binghamton

 

A three-time all-stater, Nuss should make that four in a row, if she has a season like she’s had each of her first three in high school. The slap-hitting speedster hit .654 (with a .694 on-base percentage) as a junior, collecting 89 hits and scoring 79 runs. She has the arm to throw out runners from the outfield, but very few have managed to cut her down on the basepaths: She went 41-for-41 in stolen-base attempts last season, and her consecutive steal streak — which stood at 85 entering the year — has reached triple digits, leaving her within hailing distance of the state record. 

 

6 SIERRA KERSTEN

High school: Clarkston

Position: SS (2B/OF)

Graduation year: 2020

College: Michigan

 

Second base ends up being where many teams stash the quick-handed, quick-footed-but-diminutive players, so some raised an eyebrow when Clarkston coach Don Peters stationed the  long-limbed, 5-foot-8 Kersten at second as a freshman. At least they wondered why … until the volleyball leaping ability took over on a line shot to right, and she rose up to snare a ball that few other high school second basemen would, leading Peters to chuckle, and say ‘See?’ In actuality, Kersten’s two seasons at second (where she posted a .924 fielding percentage in 2018) were just a staging ground for her current role as the Wolves’ shortstop, sliding over into the spot vacated by the graduation of 2018 Miss Softball Paige Blevins. Despite missing nearly a dozen games with injury last season, Kersten had nine extra-base hits, 26 RBI and 43 runs scored, hitting .475, with a .514 on-base percentage, and an OPS of 1.108.

The Wolves have gone 72-13 in the first two seasons with Hannah Cady, Kersten and Abbey Tolmie as mainstays in the lineup.

 

7 MOLLY CARNEY

High school: Howell

Position: P (1B)

Graduation year: 2020

Honors: HM D1 all-state (2018)

College: Notre Dame

 

After an offseason car accident a year ago, the start to Carney’s sophomore season was delayed as she healed up from some minor injuries. She didn’t throw her first game until April 11, then went 19-9 with a 2.70 ERA, striking out 217 in 158 innings pitched, helping Howell to its first-ever semifinal appearance. Carney has piled up 50 wins over her first two seasons, and through the first 10 games of this season for the Highlanders, she has seven wins, with a 1.22 ERA and 74 strikeouts in 40 innings pitched.

 

8 A.J. MILITELLO

High school: Howell

Position: UT (C/SS/OF)

Graduation year: 2019

Honors: First-team D1 all-state (2018)

College: Utah

 

The versatile Militello was one of three Highlanders to earn first-team all-state honors last season, as a utility player, helping Howell — which fell one win shy of a fourth straight 30-win season — earn its first-ever semifinal berth. Militello hit .402 with an on-base percentage of .463, scoring 47 runs and driving in 45, along with 18 stolen bases. Through 10 games as a senior, she’s hitting .576 with 22 runs scored and 20 RBI. 

 

9 GABRIELLE SHERMAN

High school: Millington

Position: P

Graduation year: 2019

Honors: First-team D3 all-state (2018)

College: Kent State

 

One of four returning all-staters for the Cardinals, Sherman was already the school’s all-time leader in career wins (66) and strikeouts (650) at the start of the season, with a career ERA of 1.15. The Kent State signee also has a career batting average of .439. As a junior, Sherman was 25-2 with an 0.80 ERA and 220 strikeouts (and a .481 average with 11 doubles and 51 RBI) through regionals, helping the Cardinals to their first-ever championship-game appearance. Millington is 112-13 in Sherman’s three-year career, going 39-3 last season. She started out this season with a perfect game against traditional D2 power Swan Valley, but still has the one slight hole on the resume: No title — yet.

 

10 RACHEL EVERETT

High school: Hartland

Position: P

Graduation year: 2021

Honors: First-team D1 all-state (2018)

 

You’d better be something special, if you walk on campus, and supplant an established veteran as the staff ace. That’s what Everett did in Hartland a season ago, splitting pitching duties with senior Madelin Skene, the Eagles’ established senior ace, in the regular season, then all but taking over the duties in the circle in the postseason, relegating the all-stater Skene to third base (where she gleefully hit bombs to help carry the Eagles all the way to the finals). As a freshman, the southpaw, Everett, pitched the Eagles to their first state title game in 23 seasons, posting a 20-5 record with a 1.739 ERA, 167 strikeouts and just five walks, earning first-team all-state honors. She is as of yet uncommitted. 

 

11 KAITLYNN BRANNSTROM

High school: Portage Central

Position: 1B/C

Graduation year: 2020

College: Purdue 

 

After hitting .426 with four homers, 42 RBI and 20 runs scored as a sophomore, the Purdue commit has been ablaze to start her junior season, hitting .658 with four homers, 17 runs and 33 RBI through Portage Central’s first 12 games. With more extra-base hits (16 — four HRs, four 3Bs, eight 2Bs) than singles (9), Brannstrom is sporting a slugging percentage of 1.395, and an OPS of 2.106.

 

12 ERIN CARTER

High school: Fenton

Position: SS (OF)

Graduation year: 2019

Honors: HM D1 all-state (2018)

College: Iowa

 

From a softball family, Carter will follow in the footsteps of her mother, who played at the University of Detroit-Mercy, and her older sister, Logan, who plays at Western Michigan, when she suits up in college. A power hitter — .625 average, 1.104 slugging percentage, 11 doubles, seven triples, seven home runs — Carter struck out just once in 96 at-bats as a junior. She drove in 45 runs and walked 14 times for the Tigers. 

 

13 HANNAH HOLLISTER

High school: Corunna

Position: CF

Graduation year: 2020

College: Grand Valley

 

A four-sport letter-winner in high school (volleyball, basketball, track and softball), Hollister chose to commit to Division II Grand Valley for softball over a handful of DI offers. It’s that spring season where Hollister has the biggest juggle — but also her best two sports. Hollister was third in the 300 hurdles and fourth in the 100 hurdles at the Division 2 state meet in Zeeland last year, the same day the Cavaliers softball squad lost 8-4 to rival Owosso in the district finals in Williamston. She’s among the leaders in the Lansing area, hitting .750 on the early season, and picked up her 100th career hit last week (before breaking a 21-year-old school record in the 200-meter dash on Friday). 

 

14 MAGGIE MURPHY

High school: Farmington Hills Mercy

Position: SS/C

Graduation year: 2021

 

Just 15 games into her sophomore season, Murphy has nearly matched last year’s total for extra-base hits, posting 13 of them so far, with seven home runs, after hitting no bombs as a freshman. As a result, her slugging percentage has nearly doubled (from .586 to 1.104), and her OPS is 1.686 through the Jack Falvo Memorial Tournament. She’s driven in a third of Mercy’s 104 runs, and is hitting .521.

 

15 LILLIAN VALLIMONT

High school: Allen Park Cabrini

Position: C

Graduation year: 2022

College: Northwestern

 

The younger of the two Vallimont sisters tearing it up for Cabrini this season, Lillian Vallimont is hitting a team-high .690 with nine home runs through 17 games for the Monarchs so far. Given her hot start, it’s not much of a question why Northwestern would have offered a scholarship to her as a 13-year-old eighth-grader.

 

16 MADDIE GILLETT

High school: Howell

Position: 1B/3B

Graduation year: 2019

College: Carson Newman

 

Based on her sophomore stat line — .511 average, 65 runs batted in, 61 runs scored — Gillett was primed for a huge 2018 season, before tearing her ACL, and missing all of her junior campaign. She’s started her senior year like she’s making up for lost time, hitting .667 (.763 OBP) with 17 RBI and 21 runs scored through the first 10 games of the season for the Highlanders. 

 

17 ABBEY TOLMIE

High school: Clarkston

Position: 1B (OF/P)

Graduation year: 2020

Honors: First-team D1 all-state (2018)

College: Central Michigan

 

Clarkston’s leadoff hitter since early in her freshman season, Tolmie scored 73 runs in the Wolves’ 43 games, driving in 37, and posting 25 extra-base hits. As a sophomore, she hit .580 with an on-base percentage of .637, and an OPS of 1.500. The lefty also chipped in as a relief pitcher, throwing 40.2 innings (just three starts), with a 3-0 record and a 2.58 ERA and 45 strikeouts. The Wolves have gone 72-13 in the first two seasons with Hannah Cady, Sierra Kersten and Tolmie as mainstays in the lineup.

 

18 OLIVIA WARRINGTON

High school: Clarkston

Position: P/1B

Graduation year: 2019

Honors: First-team D1 all-state (2018)

College: University of Detroit-Mercy

 

The staff ace for the Wolves since she joined them as a sophomore (she pitched at Waterford Our Lady of the Lakes as a freshman), Warrington has been a work-horse for Clarkston, starting 31 of their 42 games in 2018. She finished her junior season 28-3 with a 1.516 ERA and 206 strikeouts in 152.1 innings pitched. She had 65 of her 153 innings where she set the opponents down in order, 1-2-3. 

 

19. ERIN SHUBOY

High school: Richmond

Position: P/1B

Graduation year: 2019

College: University of Michigan-Dearborn

 

Had last year not happened, we’re probably talking about Shuboy with a number in single digits next to her name, especially considering what she did in the biggest spotlight as a freshman and sophomore. She was 17-3 with a 1.08 ERA as a freshman, striking out 199 in 143 innings of work, becoming the 13th player in state history to throw a no-hitter in the state championship game. She followed it up with a 19-win campaign as a sophomore, striking out 190 with a 1.98 ERA, taking the Blue Devils back to the D2 title game, where they lost to Ida. Everything changed when she tore her ACL in the first game of her junior season, costing her the entire year. Like Howell’s Maddie Gillette, she seems intent to make up for lost time as a senior, though. 

 

20 AVREY WOLVERTON

High school: Howell

Position: 1B (P)

Graduation year: 2021

Honors: First-team D1 all-state (2018)

 

While teammate Molly Carney was recuperating at the start of the season, the Highlanders had to lean on then-freshman Wolverton to carry the load in the circle. She did an exceptional job at it, going 9-2 with three shutouts and a 2.12 ERA, striking out 69 batters in 76 innings of work. This season, she’s 2-0 with an 0.00 ERA in seven appearances (two starts), including a perfect game last week. With Carney able to carry most of the pitching load, though, Wolverton can do the other thing she excels at: Hit the cover off the ball.

After hitting .446 (.500 OBP, .694 SLG, 1.194 OPS) with 15 extra-base hits and 59 RBI as a freshman, Wolverton is hitting .548 (.622 OBP, 1.129 SLG, 1.751 OPS) with 23 RBI and five home runs through 10 games so far this season. 

 

21 ALEXIS BONK

High school: South Lyon

Position: P/1B

Graduation year: 2020

Honors: HM D1 all-state (2018)

College: Wayne State

 

One of the committed high school players left hanging out to dry when Eastern Michigan cut its softball program, Bonk found a soft landing spot at Wayne State, and the Warriors are getting a gem. As a sophomore, Bonk went 17-5 with 206 strikeouts in 140 innings pitched and an ERA of 1.89. When running mate Lena Monteith is pitching, Bonk plays first, where she hit .452 with a pair of home runs and 43 RBI a year ago.

 

22 GRACE LEHTO 

High school: Eaton Rapids

Position: P/1B

Graduation year: 2020

Honors: First-team D2 all-state (2018)

 

Through regionals a year ago, Lehto was 23-4 with a 1.62 ERA and 237 strikeouts in 163 innings pitched. Lehto went toe-to-toe with Escanaba’s Gabi Salo in the D2 semifinals, holding the Eskymos hitless through four innings, and allowing just one earned run in six innings of a 2-0 loss. Through regionals last year, Lehto was hitting .520 with 60 RBI, 18 doubles and 11 home runs. 

 

23 LaNYA BATES

High school: Grand Blanc

Position: OF

Graduation year: 2020

Honors: HM D1 all-state (2018)

College: Memphis

 

The two-time all-state outfielder has been lighting it up to start the season for the Bobcats, hitting .679 (.727 on-base, 1.942 slugging) through the first nine games for Grand Blanc, posing 10 extra-base hits (seven 2Bs, 1 3B, 2 HRs) and driving in 16 runs. She has 150 hits in her career, which has just begun its third season. 

 

24 KALI HEIVILIN

High school: Three Rivers

Position: SS

Graduation year: 2021

Honors: First-team D2 all-state (2018)

 

A top-five finisher at the Michigan High School Powerlifting Association championships, there’s no question Heivilin’s got power, and plenty of it. Heivilin cracked 18 home runs as a freshman, and has 12 more this season — through last Friday — in the first 17 games for Three Rivers. In a five-game span, she was 11-for-14 with six home runs, three doubles and five walks. Though the first part of last week, the sophomore was hitting .643 with 32 RBI and 41 runs scored. Considering she’s already at 30 career home runs, she’s probably the best bet to catch the current record holder, L’Anse Creuse’s Brooke Nadolny (61 and counting).

 

25 JESSICA GARMEN

High school: Detroit Country Day

Position: C/3B/1B

Graduation year: 2019

Honors: HM D2 all-state (2018)

College: Michigan

 

A two-time all-state catcher for the Yellowjackets, Garmen hit .494 (.823 slugging, 1.400 OPS) with four homers and 35 RBI as a junior, earning herself a preferred walk-on slot at the University of Michigan.
