Maddie Gable knows when to lead, and when to follow. This season, the Cedar Crest softball team may need Gable to lead more than she ever has before.
And Gable certainly knows how to lead, both with words and by example.
On Tuesday afternoon at Northern Lebanon High School, Gable showed the way for the Falcons, during an important 4-3 road win against their Lebanon County rival Vikings. Gable was on top of her game, on the mound and at the plate.
The senior captain went the distance to pick up the ‘W’. The right-hander scattered ten hits, surrendered three earned runs and struck out three in her seven innings of work.
At the plate, from the middle of the Falcons’ order, Gable was more prolific. She collected three hits in four official at-bats.
Gable is a second-year captain on a Falcon team that is the midst of some rebuilding this spring, that from a program which is seeking direction. Gable’s contributions to the CC cause will certainly be felt in 2016, and beyond.
