Cordova’s Emma Hyche closed out her high school career with one last honor on Friday.
Hyche was one of four area softball players to make first team on the All-State Softball Team released by the Alabama Sports Writers Associtaion.
Hyche, who has been a fixture for the Blue Devils since her freshman year, was a first-team outfielder in Class 4A. Despite missing the start of the season, Hyche led the area in hitting at .573 to go along with 11 doubles, two triples and two home runs, aong with 18 RBIs and 19 runs.
Three Sumiton Christian players join Hyche on the first team. Anna Calloway (pitcher), Amber Hayes (outfielder) and Jessie Baughan (utility) each made the first team in Class 2A. The trio helped lead the Eagles to the State Softball Tournament for the 11th straight season.
Calloway finished 20-10 in the circle with a 1.56 ERA and a 1.08 WHIP. In 175 1/3 innings, she struck out 169 batters while walking just 36. Hayes had a batting average of .489 with 12 doubles, three triples and a home run, along with 56 stolen bases and 71 runs. Baughan hit .391 with seven doules, six triples, five home runs, 55 RBIs and 68 runs.
A total of five Sumiton Christian players made the squad. AK Tyree (catcher) was on the second team and Taylor Whisonant (infield) was an honorable mention selection.
Tyree was one of three Eagles to hit over .400. She hit .420 with 21 doubles, two triples and a home run with 44 RBIs and 52 runs.
Curry placed three players on the second team in Class 4A — Alea Freeman (pitcher), Katie Jo Richardson (catcher) and Alayna Key (outfield). Freeman was 22-8 with a 2.12 ERA and 0.99 WHIP, Richardson hit .505 with eight home runs and 50 RBIs and Key hit .524 with 51 stolen bases and 50 runs scored.
Also making the second team was Lynn pitcher Breanna Barton, who made the team in 1A. Barton finished 15-14 with a 2.93 ERA. She struck out 192 batters in 155 1/3 innings.
Honorable mention selections were Oakman’s Samantha Kelly in Class 3A, Cordova’s Raven Clark in Class 4A, Corner’s Brantly Bonds and Lauren Higginbotham in Class 5A and Lynn’s Hannah Alsup in Class 1A.
