Like she has countless times for the Spring Lake softball team the past three seasons, Evie Lorimer helped her team on the scoreboard during Wednesday's Michigan High School Softball Coaches Association All-Star Game.

The series of four All-Star games — which featured the top senior players in the state from each division — were each held at Michigan State University in East Lansing. 

Playing on the Red Squad in the Division 2 contest, Lorimer scored her team’s lone run in the first inning. Lorimer, who will play softball at Central Michigan University next season, drew a lead-off walk, then scored on a triple off the bat of Wayland’s Autumn Anderson.

The White Team, comprised of Division 2 players primarily from the East side of the state, tied the contest in the seventh inning and the game ended in a 1-1 tie in eight innings.

In Lorimer’s second at-bat, she flew out to deep centerfield.

Lorimer was also presented her Miss Softball trophy during the special ceremony on the field during the game.

Spring Lake coach Bill Core was on hand to watch the contest. Lorimer was the seventh player during Core’s coaching career to play in the All-Star game.

The Red squad also featured Fremont standout pitcher McKenze Supernaw, who has signed to play at Grand Valley State University.
