Senior Libby Tinsman and the Rebels aim to capitalize in softball playoffs
LAONA - Danielle Peterson has coached the Laona/Wabeno Rebel softball for almost ten years.

She says this season's lineup is the best she's had in years and there's one player who sparks the flame for the Laona Wabeno Rebels.

"This team we have right now really wants to go far this year and I think we can," said senior pitcher Libby Tinsman. 

Tinsman has made her senior year her best season yet.

"We come to practice, we give one hundred and ten percent every single time," Tinsman said. 

Practice paid off for the star pitcher.

Tinsman leads the Northern Lakes Conference in wins, hits and runs batted in.

"She is that little spit fire that just gets everyone going, and if you make a mistake she picks them back up," Peterson said. "She's not the scary senior, she's the fun one that's supportive of everyone."

Now that the playoffs are underway, the stakes are even higher.

"Us seniors are like "hey this could be our last practice our last game let's give it our all and that's our number one thing,'" Tinsman said. 

Tinsman isn't the lone star, the Rebel roster runs deep.

"You can't really count us out because everyone can hit one through nine and we have a bench that can come in and hit too," Peterson said.

Laona/Wabeno will say goodbye to their home field and hit the road for a chance at a state run.

"It's just show up and play, if we are sticks first then we get to score first so that's on okay mentality," Peterson said. 

And the Rebels are seizing the chance to give it their all.

"We've been waiting for competition all year so it's our time to show what we can do together."

Tinsman will be going to UW-Stevens Point after graduation.

The Rebels play Iola- Scandinavia Thursday in the regional finals.Read More
