Summer Bohr plays a unique role on the young Northern Lebanon softball squad. As one of the Vikings’ few seniors, S. Bohr’s job is to hold down the hot corner, drive in runs from the middle of the lineup and lead by example.
The importance of that role has only been magnified by the difficult circumstances surrounding this Northern Lebanon softball season.
This week, S. Bohr’s maturity was on full display, as Northern Lebanon stayed hot with two triumphs. Those victories kept the Vikings firmly in the race for Lancaster-Lebanon League and District Three Class AAAA playoff berths.
On Wednesday at home, S.Bohr knocked home a pair of runs from her clean-up spot in the order, during Northern Lebanon’s 8-0 blanking of Octorara. The senior third baseman’s sacrifice fly in the bottom of the first inning staked the Vikings to an early 1-0 lead, and S. Bohr also drove in Northern Lebanon’s final run, in the sixth inning, with a run-scoring single.
With those victories, the Vikings improved to 10-1 overall and 10-1 in Section Three of the L-L.
S. Bohr will continue to serve Northern Lebanon in her role as leader going forward, as the emerging Vikings look to make a run in both the league and district playoffs.
During the fall season, S. Bohr also starred on the hockey field for the Vikings.
