Deep talent pool in county leads to competitive AJC softball 1st, 2nd teams

CLEBURNE — All eight softball teams in Johnson County are represented on both the first and second teams in the Pinnacle Bank 2014 All-Johnson County selections.

The Godley Lady Cats placed three players on the all-county first team. Burleson, Burleson Centennial, Cleburne, Grandview and Joshua each are represented with two players on the first team and Alvarado and Rio Vista each placed one member on the first team.

The All-Johnson County first team is comprised of Alvarado’s Jessica Robbins, Burleson’s Kearsten Hoerig and Brooke Byrd, Burleson Centennial’s Brooklyn Vernier and Hayley McCullers, Cleburne’s Mackenzie Kirkpatrick and Jacky Torres, Godley’s Cheyenne Griggs, Jaci Smith and Linsey Tomlinson, Grandview’s Kasi Cummings and Lexi Meadows, Joshua’s Adrianne Haskins and Bailey Kennedy and Rio Vista’s Kailey Reese.

Several first-team all-county selections received higher honors in their respective all-district voting, including Godley’s Smith who received defensive MVP honors in 10-2A voting, Godley’s Tomlinson, who received offensive MVP honors in 10-2A voting, Rio Vista’s Reese, the 10-2A newcomer, Grandview’s Meadows, who earned pitcher of the year in 10-2A voting, and Joshua’s Haskins, who was the utility player for 8-4A.

The All-Johnson County second team was led by Grandview’s three selections while Alvarado, Burleson Centennial, Cleburne, Godley and Joshua each placed two on the second team. Burleson and Rio Vista each placed one on the second team.

The second team is made up of Alvarado’s Ashlen Smith and Sydney Huddleston, Burleson’s Chelsea Whitlock, Burleson Centennial’s Madison Thompson and Hannah Bennett, Cleburne’s Alli Suitt and Savanah Milne, Godley’s Kasey Richardson and Jordyn Logan, Grandview’s Lauren Starr, Kenzie Promes and Shelby Estep, Joshua’s Makynna Cunniff and Beth Massey and Rio Vista’s Railey Rumohr.

It was a successful softball season in Johnson County and the first- and second-team selections reflect that. Because of the deep talent pool in the county, many players who received first-team honors in all-district voting were bumped down to the all-county second team and the majority of players who received second-team all-district honors didn’t make the cut for the all-county teams.

Alvarado, Burleson, Burleson Centennial, Godley, Grandview and Joshua each made the postseason. A seventh team, Cleburne, lost in a tiebreaker game for the postseason as well.

The Pinnacle Bank 2014 All-Johnson County softball teams were chosen by the Times-Review based on all-district results and coaches’ nominations.
