The Rome News-Tribune recently announced its All-Area Softball Team, and many local athletes were named to the prestigious list.
Chattooga and Trion High School softball teams had players selected to the All-Area List.
The area featured a vast wealth of skill and talent. Here is the rest of the All-Area first team, organized alphabetically by last name.
Emma Howard, Chattooga, Jr.
Chattooga junior Emma Howard played both third base and pitcher this year. Howard picked up a .390 average with 25 hits, three home runs and 26 RBIs. Pitching-wise, she completed the year with a 2.50 ERA while earning a 5-2 record.
Iziah McCutchins, Trion, Fr.
Trion’s Iziah McCutchins burst onto the varsity softball scene, smacking a noteworthy .425 at the plate with 27 hits, five extra base hits, 20 RBIs, 14 walks and 11 stolen bases. McCutchins impressed her freshman year, so with three years to play, it will be interesting to see how she elevates her game.
