Seattle Times Stars of the Week for March 24-30.
Grant Fremmerlid, Seattle Christian soccer
There’s no keeping a lid on Fremmerlid — at least not when it comes to scoring. Last week, the senior forward was at it again with eight goals and two assists in three Nisqually League victories. Fremmerlid has 12 goals and six assists this season. More impressively, the reigning Nisqually MVP has at least one goal or an assist in 33 consecutive league matches. Although he is just 5 feet 9, half his goals come on headers. “He knows where to position himself and out-jumps the tallest defenders in the league,” coach David Peters said.
Brooklynn Bailey, Edmonds-Woodway softball
Bailey is back in a big way after missing 15 games last season with an ankle injury. The senior third baseman went 7 for 10 with two doubles, a triple and a home run — a 1.400 slugging percentage — to help the Warriors win three games. She drove in eight runs. Her RBI double in the bottom of the 11th inning beat Kamiak, 1-0. Bailey pounded a two-run homer against Lynnwood and was 3 for 3 with four RBI against Shorewood. “She has been hitting the ball exceptionally well this year, with even her outs being hard-hit,” coach Mike Venable said.
