Wilson Softball-Tatum Werley & Meghan Farrell

As part of Women's History month, SV Sports spoke with Wilson softball standouts Meghan Farrell and Tatum Werley about who inspires them.  Farrell, a senior pitcher, and Werley, a junior shortstop, both emphasized how important their mothers are in their lives.  Farrell also mentioned her younger sister, Madi, because of her tremendous work ethic.  Madi crushed three home runs in the Bulldogs' 6-2 victory over Manheim Township on Monday.  "It was unbelievable. I've truly never seen anything like it...she's insane. I look up to her so much," Meghan Farrell told Paul Roberts of SV Sports.  Madi, a junior first baseman, led Wilson with 24 RBI a season ago.  The Bulldogs return seven starters from a team that went (14-7, 10-2) and qualified for the Berks County and District 3-6A playoffs.  Werley was an All-Division selection as a sophomore last year.  She hit .480 with a 1.282 OPS and a team-high twelve extra-base hits.  Werley also stole 17 bases.  She's been very impressed with freshman third baseman Ava Legath.  "She has been killing it at third. Her backhand is insane," said Werley.  Ava Futrick is back behind the plate after finishing her freshman season with a .348 batting average.  "She knows how to make me laugh in times that I need it. She's my best friend on the field. We have such a good relationship," remarked Meghan Farrell.  After dropping their opener to defending BCIAA champion Berks Catholic 5-1 at Myrtle Beach, the Bulldogs have piled up 34 runs in three straight wins.  1990 Wilson graduate Gregg Kramer is in his 11th year as head coach.  He'll be handing the ball to Farrell again this season.  She had a 3.47 ERA last year with 103 strikeouts in 105 innings.  Farrell helped herself by hitting .381.  The Bulldogs are hoping to make a deep postseason run.  "I think we can go all the way," stated Farrell.
