Despite missing five games due to a leg injury suffered sliding into third base on April 17 versus Yerington, Truckee softball player Julie Rohrback still impressed her 3A counterparts with her solid hitting and outstanding fielding.

Rohrback is the lone Truckee representative on the 3A All-State Team as the Second Team third baseman. In 19 games, Rohrback committed only five errors at third base and made 28 put outs and 27 assists.

Hitting .347, the junior was second on the Wolverines in doubles (6) and tied for second in RBIs (14) in only 56 at-bats. Rohrback’s injury came at an unfortunate time for the Wolverines, as Rohrback missed five league games down the stretch, and her injury forced coach Mitch Brown to play her at second base in the Northern 3A regional playoffs versus Bishop Manogue. Manogue swept the best-of-three series.
