Junior Heather Haeflinger and freshman Dylan Grimsrud have been named Lakeland College's Muskies of the Week for their performance in action last week. Read about their success below.
Junior Heather Haeflinger garnered Muskie of the Week honors after helping the Lakeland College softball team clinch a spot in its sixth straight Northern Athletics Conference Tournament.
Haeflinger hit her 10th triple of the season and posted two doubles as the Muskies swept Wisconsin Lutheran College on April 26. She finished game two 3-for-3 and ended the doubleheader 4-for-7 with four RBIs and three runs.
The Shawano, Wis., native leads the NAC in triples and ranks fourth in the nation in triples hit per game (.3). The centerfielder has posted a .342 batting average and a .581 slugging percentage this season. She leads the team in runs (32) and stolen bases (11) and is second in hits (40).
Haeflinger looks to help the Muskies vie for a NAC Tournament Championship on May 3-5 in Milwaukee, and earn the conference's automatic bid to the NCAA Division III Tournament.
