HIGH SCHOOL SOFTBALL: Three area players earn all-state honors

Three Class 4A area high school softball players were honored with all-state selections Saturday by the Texas Sports Writers Association.

Seminole second baseman Alyssa Olivas was a first-team selection while Monahans second baseman Taryn Griner was named to the second team.

Seminole catcher Xyla Madry was named as an honorable mention.

The two Maidens helped lead their team to a District 2-4A title and a run to the regional semifinals.

Griner had previously earned an all-district honor and was a key part in the Lady Loboes’ run to the regional semifinals as well.
