Alexis Cooper, who led Sheldon to back-to-back Sac-Joaquin Section Division I softball championships, was named to the Cal-Hi Sports' All-State Softball First Team.
Cooper, The Bee Player of the Year, was 19-7 as a pitcher, hit .379 and drove in 34 runs. The senior was the catalyst of a postseason romp that saw the Huskies go unbeaten and outscore their opponents 70-6.
She will play at Arizona State.
While Cooper was the area's only first-team selection, seniors MeShalon Moore (UC Santa Barbara, catcher) of Sheldon and Alyssa Reina (North Dakota State, catcher) and Stephanie Ceo (Texas, shortstop/outfield) of Bear River made the All-State second team, as did Woodcreek junior pitcher Amanda Horbasch.
Reina and Ceo also joined Center senior first baseman Natalie Hampton (Oregon State) on Cal-Hi Sports' Medium Schools All-State team.
Reina batted .589 and set nine school records, including most career home runs with 19, and Ceo batted .489 and belted two home runs and drove in five runs in Bear River's 9-3 Division III section title victory over Whitney. Hampton batted .566 and drove in 33 runs.
Golden Sierra's Savannah Stephens (.630) made the Small Schools All-State squad, while Casa Roble sophomore Krystal Aubert (.508) made the State All-Underclass team.
