League Winners Top Tri Rivers All-Conference Softball Lists

It makes sense that the two best teams in the Tri-Rivers Conference consisted of some of the top players in the league.

The coaches apparently agreed. Schuyler County (6-1) and Putnam County (6-1) shared the Tri Rivers Conference title and they also shared 11 of the leagues 30 all-conference honors.

Schuyler County’s Tara Verkuilen was named the league’s most valuable player. The senior shortstop was the best hitter in the league. Katie Steele likely will be the front runner for the honors in 2008 as the Putnam County junior was the second leading vote recipient. Teammate Stacey Hines, also a junior was named to the first team along with Schuyler County’s Jackie Roberts (senior) and pitcher Alyssa Greenstreet (junior).

Rounding out the first team were senior Mistie Miller and junior Jillian Yoder from North Shelby, sophomore Brooke Wheeler and senior Kassidy Shuman of Clark County, and senior Kellie Alexander of Brookfield.

Four Lady Midgets earned second team honors led by junior Hillary Mason and senior Tessa Casady. Senior Brittany Casady and sophomore Sarah Riley also were honored. Scotland County first baseman Diedra Dochterman was named to the second team. Brookfield had two second teamers in Ashlie Teter and Beth Knowles, both juniors. The rest of the second team included Kaitlin Stump, a sophomore from Schuyler County; Lorrie Peters, a sophomore from Knox County; and Brenna Buford, a senior from Clark County.

SCR-I had two players make the third team. Junior outfielder Valerie Oldham and senior shortstop Kirsten Johnston were honored by the coaches. The remainder of the third team included Stephanie March, a junior from Schuyler County; Elizabeth Hudson, a senior and Mariah Jones a sophomore, both from North Shelby; Brandy Shultz, a sophomore from Putnam County; Kacie King, a senior from Brookfield; Brittany Miller and Myra Parrish, sophomores from Knox County; and Emily Stewart, a senior from Clark County.

Schuyler County’s Steve Stock was honored as the Tri-Rivers Conference Coach of the Year.

Brookfield finished third in the league with a 5-2 mark. Clark County (4-3) was fourth followed by North Shelby (3-4), Scotland County (2-5), Knox County (2-5) and Milan (0-7).
