Shining Star Senior Night: Reardan softball’s Preuschoff, Abrahamson and Wiedmer

SPOKANE, Wash. – We understand why Spring sports had to be canceled, but those practices, games, meets and matches all hold communities together and give athletes so much to look forward to. We are trying to make sure the seniors who had this season taken away can still have a final, special moment.

We’re honoring three seniors on Reardan’s softball team, who have played together for several seasons, even on the same club travel team!

Katherine Preuschoff has started at shortstop on varsity all four years, and is a co-captain,and was an all-conference player last year. But that’s not all…she also played basketball, is a member of the FBLA, plays clarinet for Reardan’s band, all while maintaining a 4.0…she shares valedictory honors at reardan with two other students….one of them is her teammate.

Payten Abrahamson shares valedictorian honors with Katherine, she also has a 4.0 GPA, and has started all 4 years either at catcher, 2nd base or outfield. Payten is an honor society member and on the captain’s council, she plans to get her AA, then head to the University of Idaho (go vandals) to become a wildlife biologist.

Emma Wiedmer is a pitcher, and plays 2nd and 3rd base. National Honor Society and FBLA member, but she’s also been involved in cheer, volleyball and basketball. Somehow, she’s also committed herself to Nearly 600 hours of community service. She’s also going to the Unviersity of Idaho next Fall (go Vandals) to study pediatric physical therapy.

All of these young women will go on to do great things, but not getting your final season together is not easy to accept, the loved ones who nominated them are proud of how gracefully they’ve handled this situation.
