Madelin Skene, Hartland
The Livingston County leader in home runs (10) as a junior, Skene was a monster in the heart of Hartland’s lineup. She posted a .489 batting average, 60 hits, 56 RBIs and scored 42 runs while also belting 12 doubles, three triples and stealing seven bases. She was also the Eagles’ go-to girl in the circle, where she excelled with a 17-8 record, 2.88 ERA and 157 strikeouts in 141 innings. Skene’s team was second to Howell in the KLAA West, but it was still one of the best in the 24-team league, losing to both the Highlanders and Lakeland, but doing so in a pair of epic duals. If she wins, her “Heisman moment” of the season was when she blasted three home runs — including a grand slam — in a 14-5 victory over Clarkston in April. She had nine RBIs that game, tying her for third-most in state history for a single game, and her three homers were tied for second.
