This week’s Republic-Times Athletes of the Week are Waterloo baseball player Corey Vogel and Waterloo softball player Kaitlyn Storm, both seniors.
Vogel was masterful for much of Monday’s regional championship game against host Freeburg on Monday, shutting down the Midgets through six innings. The ace lefty picked up his sixth win of the spring.
Storm went 4-for-4 with a walk-off home run to lead off the bottom of the seventh inning in Monday’s thrilling 9-8 regional title win over Columbia at home. She is hitting above .430 this spring for the Bulldogs.
