Bellevue alum earns collegiate honor

Katie Savard, a Bellevue High School grad and member of a pair of state playoff softball teams, was named Athlete of the Week at Claremont-Mudd-Scripps College for her performance on the diamond.

Savard went 6-11 and knocked in nine runs over four games, all wins, to bring her batting average to .429 through the first 15 games of the season.

During the 2011 3A state playoff season at Bellevue, when the Wolverines reached the semifinals, Savard went 4-4 and had an RBI and run scored in her team's quarterfinal win over Kamiakin.
