Senior Brianna Neumeyer caps her stellar multi-sport career at Manitowoc Lutheran in grand fashion, winning the Herald Times Reporter’s All-Area Softball Athlete of the Year for a second year in a row.

Earlier in the month, she was also named the Olympian Conference’s Player of the Year after hitting a robust .478 with 26 runs, 26 RBI, seven doubles, four triples and an area-best 32 hits, three home runs and .836 slugging percentage.

In 67 at bats, Neumeyer showed great plate discipline by striking out just twice all season while drawing five walks and being hit by a pitch once en route to a .521 on base percentage.

Neumeyer also led the area’s best team to a No. 1 seed for the WIAA Division 4 playoffs, guiding the Lancers to the sectional opener before falling to fellow No. 1 Oakfield 10-0 in six innings.

Defensively, she was second on the team among players with at least 95 chances with .908 field percentage.

“Brianna is just one of those special players,” said Lutheran coach Don Menges. “She is such a great player on offense and defense because of her natural athletic ability.”

That athletic ability will be put on display as Neumeyer is set to play for the UW-Whitewater volleyball team. She was also chosen as the HTR Volleyball player of the year last fall.
