Our Athlete of the Week this week is Alyssa Saenz. She's a softball standout at Newton High School.

Saenz is just a junior and she's already verbally committed to play softball at Southern Nazarene University in Oklahoma.

Saenz is considered the team leader and prides herself on being very vocal.

"Everyone once in a while we'll have a competition, who can be louder in practice, just to try to get girls pumped up and stuff."

Saenz is batting .354 and has a fielding percentage of .833. Her coach said Saenz play will be key in determining how far the team goes in the postseason.

"She keeps us rolling," Kirsten Horton said.
