2013 Flyer All-County softball team selected

With such a successful season by many county teams, it should come as no surprise the all-county softball team was a large one. Tri-West won a state title, Plainfield advanced to semistate, Cascade made it to regionals, and Avon and Bethesda played in sectional final games, showcasing the area’s talent for the state to see.

Tri-West finished 25-4 and collected the first state softball title in school history and leads the list with five all-county selections, each hitting above .450 on a team that averaged more than 10 runs a game.

Senior catcher Taylor Heath hit .576 with 25 RBI to lead the Bruins in batting average, but sophomore Lizzie Meyer was right on her heels with a .519 average and 29 RBI to go along with 15 stolen bases. Third baseman Claire Johnson, a sophomore, returns to the all-county team, hitting .471 and recording an astounding 47 RBI with nine doubles and seven triples. Senior shortstop Kaitlyn Settlemoir hit .453 with 23 RBI and tallied 17 stolen bases while fellow senior Alyssa Clark hit .455 with an impressive 35 RBI, recording 18 doubles and six stolen bases.

Cascade (24-2) advanced to the regional round before falling to eventual Class 2A state champion, Indianapolis Scecina. It marks the second time in consecutive seasons the Cadets were bounced from the tournament by the eventual state champion.

Cascade’s all-everything Brandyce Salle wrapped up her prep career before heading to Butler with a very impressive year. Sallee, a three-time all-county selection, hit .634 on the year with 43 RBI and 14 doubles and 11 homeruns while handling duties behind the plate where she tallied a 100 percent fielding average. Junior pitcher Kate Breedlove ended with a 14-1 record from the mound while hitting .387 from the plate with 20 RBI. Junior pitcher Kellie Mink was undefeated on the mound (10-0) while batting .535 with 29 RBI. Junior Morgan Burch hit .470 on the season with 33 RBI and eight doubles.
