Jeni Bollenbacher, Edwardsburg's community Queen for the Blossomtime Festival in 2008, was an All-State soft ball star in her senior year and hurled her team to a district championship.
One of the finest high school girls soft ball players we've seen since Jessica Chopp of Mattawan, Blossomtime, 2005.
Jeni played for the American Legion lady All-Stars from west Chicago against the House of David as a 2008 season opener at Eastman Field. Later in the season on the evening before her leaving for college, Jeni played for the House of David in a contest with the Penn Township (at Vandalia, MI) fire department.
We thank Jeni for attending two of our ball games, she is a great athlete, a good academic student and just a lovely young lady.
