This week’s featured athlete is Kasi Kraus. Kasi is a sophomore pitcher / utility player for the CCC softball team, majoring in physical education. She came to Central from Eskridge, Kansas, via Mission Valley High school where she was a four year letter winner for the Vikings.
This season, Kraus has really risen to the forefront for the Lady Tiger softball team. She currently leads the team in batting average (.423), hits (55), stolen bases (20), and ERA (5.44). She was named this week’s A.I.I. Female Athlete of the Week, for her exploits on the diamond last week. The Tigers played six times last weekend, and went 4-2. For the weekend, Kraus went 11 for 19 (.578), with an on base percentage of .681. She scored ten runs, had four RBI, and stole nine bases. She hit safely in all six games, and extended her current hitting streak to 19 games.
When she is not on the softball diamond, Kais enjoys spending time with her friends and family, especially her nieces, and crafting and painting. Her favorite Bible verse is Ecclesiastes 9:10, “Whatever your hands find to do, do it with all your might.”
