Cooper's Walek homers her way to a state record

Posted by: $author Updated: May 5, 2010 - 4:07 PM

Robbinsdale Cooper sophomore Brenna Walek set a Minnesota high school record Monday when she hit four home runs -- all of them over-the-fence shots -- in the Hawks' 17-0 victory in the first game of a double-header at Fridley. Walek drove in nine runs with her four blasts.

The four home runs in one game are a state record. The old record, according to the Minnesota State High School League website, is two home runs in a game.

Fridley pitchers were a little more careful when pitching to Walek in the second game of the double-header. She was intentionally walked in her first four at-bats before lining a single in her final plate appearance in a 10-0 victory.

The national record for home runs in a game is five, set in 1977 by Janet Weisenforth of Heatly High School in Green Island, N.Y.

-- In other Cooper news, forward Calvin Godfrey will follow Fred Hoiberg from the Twin Cities to Ames, Iowa. Godfrey, a 6-foot-8 power forward who averaged 18.8 point per game this season, signed a Letter of Intent to play at Iowa State.
