Sports Spotlight 5-24: Whitehall Softball

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT)–On to our Sports Spotlight Segment, honoring the seniors who missed out on their last year of competition.

As a reminder you at home get to decide who gets put in the Sports Spotlight sending in nominations.

And if you haven’t seen your nomination air yet, don’t worry. We will contact you when they are set to air.

With all that in mind, today’s nomination comes from Whitehall.

And it’s the Seven Seniors who made Whitehall softball so special.

Ellie Matejka, Isabel Sartor, Morgan Lauterbach, Victoria Frye, Halaynna Macharia, Bailey Kjos and Hayley Haas all were leaders for the Norse, and they had to be.

When they were juniors, there were no seniors on the team, forcing them to lead the squad into the playoffs.

They were able to win a regional playoff game, before falling to the top ranked team last year.

Coach Lyga wishes they’d get one more crack at it, and is confident this team would have gone out with a bang.

If you have an athlete you want to nominate, head to our sports page at and click on our Sports Spotlight story. There you’ll be invited to fill out our nomination form. You can also send me an email with any photos and videos of your athlete that you’d like me to include on-air.
