Scholar Athlete of the Week: Columbus’ Grace Entlich
ENTLICH HOLDS A 4.375 GPA AND PLAYS SOFTBALL AND LACROSSE
The Columbus High Blue Devils have built a dynasty on the diamond, punching their ticket back to playoffs for the 13th season in-a-row.
“We like to peak at the right time, like last year we definitely peaked at region,” said Columbus junior outfielder Grace Entlich. “So I think this year is going to be hopefully similar. We peak at the right time and that’s honestly all that matters.”
Entlich is an integral part to the Blue Devils. This season the junior tallied 17 hits, 11 RBI 4 stolen bases and an .800 fielding percentage.
“I like that I get to see the ball longer and I get to be the last resort almost. They trust that it’s not going to get past me or anything, so I like being the backbone and the support system.”
Entlich balances softball with lacrosse, a 4.375 GPA, National Honor Society, Beta Club and Art Club.
“Definitely getting involved is very important, and finding people to help you get involved. It’s hard being a student at Columbus High School. There’s a lot of work that goes into it, but having softball as an activity that I do. It’s also been important in keeping my mental aspect up.”
The junior finished this season with second team all-region honors. Congratulations to Grace Entlich, our WLTZ Scholar Athlete of the Week.
