Spring All-Area

WASHINGTON — As usual, selecting All-Area teams is never easy, and this spring was no different.

There were certainly athletes that were easy selections for teams, especially for the top athletes in a particular sport.

Barr-Reeve's Connor Sorrells certainly had a senior year to remember.

Sorrells won the state cross country title last fall, and placed second this spring in the 3,200 meters.

Washington's Madison Decker continues to build her running career.

Decker won the 3,200 meters in the sectional, and is expected to have a banner fall and spring when school resumes for 2013-2014.

Picking a Player of the Year in softball was also pretty easy. There are two.

Washington's Allexis Lemon and Loogootee's Gabrielle Ritchey set the pace, not only in this season, but also during their careers. They shared that honor.

Tennis was also shared in one sense. Washington's doubles team of Audra Stallman and Rachel Chattin progressed to the State Doubles Regional before losing in the tournament.

There were plenty of candidates for baseball. Nearly every school had its own, but Brayden Walls of Washington was our pick.

Finally, area golfers are progressing. Clay Hatton is our winner this year.

Hatton returns next season along with last year's winner Cam Lancaster and runner-up Eric Wagler of Barr-Reeve.

Each area team has several players returining for the 2014 spring. It should be a great season.

Below is a listing of each sport with the members of our teams.

Congratulations to each athlete.
