Former Model Laboratory High School graduate and softball standout Kara Renfro was recently named the Mid-South Conference Softball Player of the Week. 

The Paint Lick native hit .586 during the week, helping Georgetown College go 7-1. She finished with three home runs, five doubles, two triples and 21 RBIs. She was also seven-of-seven in stolen bases and scored 10 runs. 

It is the fifth time Renfro has been honored as MSC Player of the Week. She is a three-time Mid-South All Conference selection and was a 2007 NAIA Region XI Second-Team selection. 

In her junior season, Renfro batted .475 and was among the Top 25 in NAIA Division I in five offensive categories, including stolen bases (12th). 

Renfro graduated from Model in 2004 and is the daughter of Bo and Joy Renfro and granddaughter of Phillip and Virginia Stump and Mosella Stump of Lancaster.
