FERDINAND—No Tell City players were named to the All-PAC girls softball team elected by conference coaches Sunday.
Tell City senior first baseman-shortstop-pitcher McKenzie Hayes was the highest vote-getter among those receiving honorable mention as a utility player on the team.
Had she made the team, she would have joined Krista Blunk as the only Tell City girl to make all-conference in three sports in one school year.
Hayes was leading the Marksmen with a .311 batting average at the time of the voting and finished at .298 after Monday’s sectional loss to Mater Dei.
Tell City Coach John Hayes noted there were a lot of quality players competing for the 13 All-PAC spots.
“In my opinion, this is the best softball conference in the state,” he said.
Tecumseh pitcher Tiffany Summers, Gibson Southern infielder Vailey Eberhard, and Heritage Hills utility player Kaitlin Kralj were the only repeaters from last year’s all-conference team.
Last year Eberhard made it as an outfielder and Kralj made it as a pitcher.
Tell City, which tied Forest Park for eighth in the nine-team league at 1-7, was one of four teams that was blanked on the all-conference squad.
Tecumseh, South Spencer and Forest Park each had three players make it.
Co-champions Heritage Hills and Gibson Southern each had two make it.
