The Highland softball team practically qualified their entire team on all-conference this year, grabbing seven spots on first team.

On first team for the Huskies is Katie Springer for pitcher, who was a perfect 18-0 in conference games, with a .78 ERA and 122 strikeouts; Cheyann Adamson for infield with a .655 average, 24 RBI’s two homers, triples and doubles and 36 runs; Courtnee Hahn for catcher with a .341 average, 10 RBI’s and a homer; Morgan Craig for infield with a .487 average and 21 RBI’s; Kelsey Hora for outfield with a .449 average and 31 runs scored; Jordan Rath for outfield with a .395 average and 10 RBI’s; and Bailey Walsh with a .388 average was chosen for utility.

Between all of the first teamers, there were 10 errors on 235 putouts.

On second team for Highland is Bridget Murphy and Seaira Drish for infield, and for honorable mention is Kaytlin Chalupa and senior Katie Hora.

Head coach Carrie Wieland said the whole season was great, and that all of her girls deserve all the awards they are being given.

“I think you have to look back at our season, having won/loss just going into the state tournament, and having a pitcher that is 29-1 when you get to the state tournament, and that happened because of our defense. We averaged about 10 hits per game over the course of the season until we go to state,” Wieland said. “We were a good team, and like I said, they have worked hard together as a team to get to that point and to do those things.”

Highland went undefeated in their conference season for the second year in-a-row.
