Senior Grace Behrle is set to go to Mizzou to major in business and minor in French and psychology. With a 4.07 GPA and a 30 on the ACT, she was also accepted into the Honors college at Mizzou and nominated for the Eagle Award.

“I was not expected to be nominated at all, but it is a huge honor to me. I’m really grateful for all the amazing experiences that I’ve had at Webster these past four years,” Behrle said.

As well as being incredibly smart, she’s also an amazing softball player. While she doesn’t plan on playing on the Mizzou Softball team, she will play on the club team and possibly try to walk onto the official team.

Behrle has been a scholar athlete all four years of high school, received the statesman award, achieved all regions first team, was captain of the Varsity softball team, MVP, had a hit in 30 of the 31 games and was also the September Athlete of the Month.

Behrle’s most memorable softball moment was setting a school record for bases in one softball season (81 bases), most hits in one softball season (48 hits) and the second in school softball history for outs recorded (475).

“It was really amazing to hear that I had broken some records this year. I wasn’t trying to break them specifically, I just wanted to work hard and have fun my last year,” Behrle said.

Softball coach Bryan Gibson said, “The biggest difference in Grace now, is her leadership; she has grown comfortable being a voice for the team and relentlessly encouraging her teammates.”
