Why Wrenn was selected:
Wrenn had a pair of extra-base hits – a double and a home run – in back-to-back Geneva wins.
Molly Wrenn is a player on the move. The senior is thinking big thoughts for her fourth year on the team, and she is putting her thoughts in action. Wrenn doubled in a 5-0 win against Bartlett on April 7 and hit a home run the next day in the Vikings’ 10-6 win against Wheaton North as Geneva continued its strong start to the season. Wrenn, the St. Charles Bank & Trust Athlete of the Week, caught up with Kane County Chronicle correspondent Tammy Swanson to discuss her goals this year, the team’s goals, and more. Here is an edited transcript.
Swanson: What do you attribute your success to so far this season?
Wrenn: We’ve been focusing on hitting early on your count, fighting your pitch to hit, getting good contact on it.
Swanson: Where is your team’s strength this season?
Wrenn: The middle of our lineup, the top three middle of our lineup is really strong. Once people start hitting then everyone reacts on that and gets going. It’s really nice.
Swanson: What are your goals for the team this year?
Wrenn: We have never had a conference title. It’s a huge goal, but hopefully we can do it. Hopefully, we’re going to achieve that.
Swanson: What are your personal goals this season?
Wrenn: Personally, I want to get more RBIs [this year]. Last year, I had 38. I like to go for 40, 45 or 50. I want to overall just get hits and get on base.
