CASSELTON, N.D. – Hillsboro-Central Valley senior Noella Kritzberger laced up her softball cleats one final time this week as a member of the Scheels North Dakota All-Star Series.

Kritzberger was one of 14 players representing  the Class B East Region and Class A Eastern Dakota Conference, appearing in all three of the tournament’s games.

She got the start in the pitching circle in Tuesday’s series finale at Kost Field in Casselton, N.D.

“I was really honored when I got the email and they chose me for the All-Star team,” Kritzberger said. “I’ve had so much fun and I’ve met a lot of girls that I never thought I’d cheer for in my entire life or play on a team with them, but they’re so sweet and I just had the best time ever.”
