Two area softball players, Highland's Abbie Miller and Lone Tree's Arlie Lorack, have earned Honorable Mention All-State honors from the Iowa Girls Coaches Association.
Miller, a Class 2A selection, was the anchor of a strong Huskie offense. She drove in 47 runs while hitting .444. Miller hit a team-high 13 extra-base hits this season. She became the Highland single-season record holder in RBIs and captured the career record for home runs.
In Class 1A, Lorack was honored for the huge leap she took her freshman year. The Lone Tree left fielder hit .516 this year after batting .210 in her first year of varsity softball. The big leap showed in the rest of her stats as she led the Lions in hits, doubles and on-base percentage.
In 64 at-bats this year Lorack only struck out one time, leading to Lone Tree coach Tom Dickey calling her the best contact hitter he has coached.
