U12 Fastpitch Softball Team

The Mount Horeb U12 Fastpitch Softball team recently completed a perfect season by defeating Milton 17-5 in the South Central League Championship at Firefighter’s Park in Middleton on July 30th.  The team finished league play with a 10-0 record before defeating Poynette in the semifinals 15-3 in Mt Horeb.  The team was an offensive juggernaut throughout the season regularly scoring 10+ runs.  Dominant pitching supported by defense that improved throughout the season kept opponents at bay.  The signature stamp of this team was the team first attitude of the players – supporting each other and working together.

Pictured are (front) coach Laci Pustina, Alexa Vesely, Eireland McCully, Sienna Feltz, Hallie Klein, Olivia Parks (back) coach Wes Parks, Ellie Larson, Lily Post, Morgan Monroe, Jayse Holman, Ruby Dahilk, Maddie Swiggum, and coach Jeramie Holman. Not pictured – Jessie Ricci

In a show of great sportsmanship the Milton and Mount Horeb players pose for a group picture following the game.

Softball Frolic Parade Float

The Mount Horeb Summer Frolic is just around the corner, and the Softball Club will be having a float in this year’s parade!

All are welcome to help decorate the float on Saturday from 10AM to noon at the Kraemer’s house (3160 Getz Road, Mt. Horeb) and/or join in the parade on Sunday.

The parade starts at noon, so please have your daughter to the parade start (along E. Lincoln Street on the north side of the Middle School) no later than 11:45 a.m.  The parade ends on Parkway Drive by the Frolic grounds which is where the girls will be dropped off, so please make plans to meet up there.

If the girls can wear their red jerseys, or anything red / softball related, that would be great.  Please text or email me at 608-239-8207 or with any questions.

Here is a link to more info on the parade, including the route map:

5:00 – 6:00 PM = 4th & 5th Grades
6:00 – 7:00 PM = 6th / 7th / 8th Grades

Please email Barry Larson at if this creates a conflict with your daughter’s schedule.
