Lauren Quense might have come up just a little bit short in her bid to win a state championship, but the Neshaminy graduate accomplished just about everything else in her stellar high school softball career.
This includes the honor of being named this week as the Pennsylvania "Player of the Year' by a committee comprised of coaches from around the state.
Quense, who will play on scholarship at Fordham University this upcoming year, recently pitched Neshaminy to the state final where the Redskins lost a one-run heartbreaker in 12 innings.
Quense had a tremendous senior season as Neshaminy finished with a 23-3 record and the No. 2 ranking in the area.
In the circle, Quense struck out over 250 batters with 14 shutouts. She also pitched to an ERA of under 1.80. Quense tore it up at the plate as well with a whopping 10 home runs and 28 RBIs. Her batting average was over. 400.
For her efforts, Quense was also named to the first team of The Trentonian's All-Area team for the second straight season and was The Trentonian's co-Player of the Year along with Robbinsville's Lauren Fischer.
