For the last few years, when you heard "Mankato East softball" you'd think of Coley Ries ... but THIS year, a new name comes to mind!
Megan Ulrich (Uhl–RICK) steps in and STANDS out at East!
She led the Cougars to the East Tournament Championship and produced a victory!
She's our K–E–Y–C Scheels All–Sports Girls Prep Athlete of the Week.
Mankato East's Megan Ulrich has spent the past 3 years preparing for her senior season.
"...good demeanor in the circle and that really helps."
"...it'll be a good year."
"... that to me is what kids need to see."
Her positivity is just ONE of the reasons why Ulrich is a team–captain.
"...motivating everyone to do their best."
"Just watching her work hard in practice, that's something I look up to and she works really hard in games."
"...battled ... and that's really important."
Keeping her head up has helped Ulrich stand–out THIS season ... she was even named to the all–tournament team at East's home tourney last weekend.
And that's why she's our K–E–Y–C Scheels All–Sports Girl's Prep Athlete of the Week.
