Senior first baseman Abby Krzywiecki set a state record for single-season home runs and led Farmington Hills Mercy to a district softball championship Saturday.
Krzywiecki hit a two-run shot in the seventh inning of the final game, capping a 7-0 victory over North Farmington in the Division 1 tournament at Livonia Stevenson.
It was her 19th homer of the season and 47th of her four-year varsity career.
With one out in the seventh, Sophie VanAcker singled and was on base when Krzywiecki cleared the left-field fence with room to spare.
“It just shows that my hard work has paid off,” Krzywiecki said. “I know I can produce good numbers if I put a good swing on it, and that’s what I’ve been working on.
