By a vote of the District Coaches Association, the Ohio High School Athletic Association’s Southeast District recently announced the 2015 All-District softball selections and four young ladies from Adams County received district recognition.

Two of the All-District honorees come from North Adams High School, led by junior pitcher Jade Spriggs. On the strength of a strong junior year on the mound and at the plate, Spriggs was named to the Division IV All-District First Team and in addition was named to the All-Ohio Second Team, narrowly missing a First Team selection.

Teammate Kylie Branch, who recently signed to continue her softball career as a Southern State Patriot, was solid at the plate and in the field her senior season and for her efforts was named to the Southeast District Division IV Honorable Mention squad.

Another junior, Manchester’s Morgan Johnson, was selected to the Southeast District Division IV First Team, while teammate Brook Henley, also a recent SSCC signee, was named to the Division IV Second Team.

A number of other softball players from the Southern Hills Athletic Conference received All-District honors, including Eastern Brown’s Mikayla Purdy, who was named Division III First Team and All-Ohio Honorable Mention. Also in Division III, Honorable Mention recognition went to Brittany Allen, Madysyn Creighton, Chelsi Hacker, and Hannah Binkley, all from Lynchburg-Clay.

In Division IV, Whiteoak’s ace pitcher Kiley Sosby was named All-District First Team as well as All-Ohio First Team. That feat was matched by Fairfield senior Kaitlin Evans, also First Team All-District and First Team All-Ohio.

Whiteoak placed two players on the All-District Second Team, sisters Jaycie and Jayde Parr, joined on the Second Team by Fairfield’s Shaylee Carson. Honorable Mention in Division IV went to Whiteoak’s Ashleigh Harless.
