All-City and All-State teams are some of the most rewarding, if not stressful, times of the year. Who am I to say who deserves what, especially when it comes to subjective results? Swimming, track, wrestling, it’s kind of simple. Where you finished at state is a pretty good indicator of where you belong on a postseason team. But what about, say for this instance, slowpitch softball? And then when you’re trying to combine both Big and Little All-City, how do you not sway from having too many Big or too many Little? Inevitably, people are going to be left out. But that’s the beauty of a blog. So yeah, we know about the Chelsea Garcias and Samantha Childers of the softball world, but what about some of the others?
Here are some of the girls who deserve some sort of recognition (in no particular order): Blaike Boles, Wayne, P: Played against tough competition. Only a sophomore, she’ll be back. Jossie Grubbs, Wellston, OF: A three-year starter with a .481 average, quick on the basepaths. Taran Threet, Wellston, IF: A gaudy .670 average, only downside was trying to compare level of competition. Just a sophomore, man, if she can continue what’s she doing, no debate. Kayla Miller, Wellston, IF: 11 triples is what stands out her, has signed with Bacone.
Samara Stewart, Bridge Creek, IF: The slugger for the Bobcats with 35 RBIs. Christina Boghetich, Heritage Hall, IF: School record for most doubles in a career and fifth most RBIs. Vicena Carson, Norman North, IF: A tough leave-out, did just about everything for NNorth, signed with Rose State. Kim Dixon, Wayne, OF: .600 average on a team that lost 14 games to 5A & 6A teams, not bad. Jessie Miller, Little Axe, IF: Another one on the fence, a .556 average and 45 runs highlight this Oklahoma Baptist-signee. Blair Brooks, Blanchard, IF: A fine season for a fine team, headed to Butler Comm. College in KS. Cara Walker, Harrah, OF: Solid leadoff hitter with 39 runs and a .518 average.
