Their high school season was over more than two months ago, but Louisburg High School juniors Kennia Hankinson and Madison Svoboda are still in softball mode.

Hankinson and Svoboda traded in their Lady Cat uniforms for a KC Infinity one for the summer as the Louisburg duo is currently helping the second-year 16A team to a successful year.

Although KC Infinity still has two tournaments remaining this season, the team has recorded a 20-8 record and are currently ranked No. 1 in the USSSA Power Rating Points in Kansas and are No. 12 in the nation.

KC Infinity recently finished first in the Northwest Arkansas Showcase and took third in the Heartland Showcase College Exposure.

Hankinson, the team’s starting shortstop, currently has a .420 average on the year and a .990 OPS. Svoboda, has also had a good season at the plate with a .328 average and an .848 OPS as the Infinity starting second baseman.

“Kennia has done a fantastic job at shortstop for us and has been very consistent in the leadoff spot in our lineup putting pressure on teams from the first pitch,” Infinity coach Melissa Fast said. “Madison has driven in 14 runs this summer including a two run walk off home run in our last tournament. She has also played very solid at second base.”

The Louisburg duo are a part of an Infinity team that is made up for players from Paola, Manhattan, Perry, Olathe, Ottawa, Basehor, Eudora, Adrian (Mo.) and Cameron (Mo.).

Both players had good seasons for the Lady Cats last spring, including Svoboda, who earned second team all-Frontier League honors.
