Saginaw senior shortstop Kaitlyn Huseman - Kat to her friends - had herself a career season this past spring for the Rough Riders. She had a career-high seven home runs - six in the regular season.
She had three home runs combined through her first two years.
Playing since she was four, Huseman instantly fell in love with the game. Now entering the final year of high school, Huseman is the reigning Defensive MVP in the most competitive districts in the state, 6-5A.
The Rough Riders finished second and made it to the third round for the first time since 2009. Huseman finished with a .409 batting average and team highs 14 doubles, 36 RBIs and 1.294 OPS.
