Eight Eagles earn all-district softball honors

Staff Writer
Pecos Eagles senior catcher Rebecca Wein was named the Most Valuable Player for District 2-4A in softball, and pitcher Stephanie Herrera was named the district's outstanding defensive player in voting by the district's six coaches.

Three other Pecos starters were named to the first team 2-4A squad and three more were second team selections for the Eagles, who won the district title for the fourth consecutive season.

The list was release following this past weekend's playoff losses by Pecos to San Angelo Lake View and by Fabens to Andrews in the area round of the Class 4A playoffs.

Wein was the outstanding defensive player on last year's all-district team and has been name to the team all four seasons on the Eagles' varsity. This year, she led the team in both batting and extra base hits, as Pecos went 10-0 in district and 14-5 on the season.

Herrera was 9-0 in district games and 13-3 overall in earning her second straight first team 2-4A selection. She had three one-hit games in district, and received the defensive award for her fielding work on both bunts and balls hit back to the mound during district play.

The other first team selections were first baseman Jessica Rodriguez, second baseman Danielle Garcia and left fielder Neftali Salgado. Rodriguez, like Wein and Herrera, was a repeat all-district pick at first base this season from the 2001 team, while Salgado was an honorable mention selection a year ago in the outfield, and Garcia made the first team as a freshman this year.

Two of the three honorable mention selections also are freshmen, third baseman Katie Lee and rightfielder Kelsey Flores. Lee started most of the Eagles' games at third base this season, though she and Garcia had to spend time at shortstop late in the season, while Flores played most of her 2-4A games in the outfield, then was at both second and third base in the final regular season games.

Sophomore Bre'Ann Windham is the other second team pick for the Eagles, as centerfielder. She split time in the outfield last year with Salgado, and took over the centerfield spot this season after starter Kathy Maldonado was injured.

Second place San Elizario also had five players chosen to the first-team all-district squad, including junior Valerie Soto, who was named Outstanding Pitcher for the second year in a row. Fabens, the third place finisher, has three players selected along with Clint, with the Lions' senior Marissa Arnold earning Outstanding Offensive Player honors.

San Eli also had senior catcher Reba Madrid, junior shortstop Vicki Treviso, junior second baseman April Valencia and freshman outfielder Carla Garcia named to the first team. Clint's Arnold was joined by two other seniors, shortstop Jennie Parada and second baseman Yvette Maldonado, while Fabens put senior pitcher Regina Villalobos, junior outfielder Samantha Arrellano and sophomore shortstop Nancy Ramirez on the first team.

The other first team selections were Canutillo senior Maria Hurtado at shortstop and junior Cassandra Cisneros at pitcher, and senior shortstop Vanessa Sanchez and freshman outfielder Brenda Beltran from El Paso Mountain View.

The other second team selections were San Eli sophomores Valerie Valencia and Debbie Ayala at first and third base; Fabens seniors Marisol Maya and Stephanie Olivas at outfield and shortstop; Clint junior first baseman Nancy Almanza, Canutillo junior second baseman Janice Marquez and Mountain View senior catcher Luisa Alvarado.
