Gazette's Peak Performer of the Week: Payton Romines, Air Academy, softball

Mon, Aug 29, 2016 - 9:17 PM

It's been a little more than a week since high school softball season started, but Payton Romines already has the full attention of pitchers everywhere.

Through seven games, the senior slugger is batting .625, has two home runs and leads the state with 13 RBIs. She's also slugging an absurd 1.083, and teams are starting to notice.

"I wouldn't pitch to Payton if I were an opposing coach, especially in a late-game situation," Air Academy coach Chris Hernez said. "But the great thing is we have hitters in the 5-7 spots who will make teams pay for that."

Romines bats third in the Kadets' order, with Julia Elbert, another senior heavy-hitter, behind Romines in the clean-up spot.
