Marin Penney, Gracie Neville lead Three Rivers League softball all-stars
While neither Lake Oswego or Lakeridge finished on top in this year's Three Rivers League softball race — that honor went to TRL champion and state semifinalist Tualatin — but several Lakers and Pacers did.
In the 2017 Three Rivers League all-star voting, Lake Oswego sophomore infielder Marin Penney and Lakeridge senior utility player Gracie Neville both earned first-team honors, while another eight Lake Oswego and Lakeridge players were also honored.
Penney — who led the Lakers to a fourth-place finish in the TRL and their first state playoff berth since 2011 — batted .489 in league this year with four homers, 18 RBIs and 17 runs scored and just three strikeouts in 45 at-bats.
Neville and the Pacers, meanwhile, placed seventh in the league race, with Neville hitting .481 with seven RBIs and eight runs scored.
Also honored from Laker Oswego were: sophomore outfielder Layney Lombardo (.271 BA, 11 RBIs, 12 runs), second team; junior infielder Morgan Jones, honorable mention; and senior outfielder Lillian Harwood, honorable mention.
Also honored from Lakeridge were: senior infielder Kelley Ericson (.462 with two homers, 11 RBIs and six runs), second team; freshman pitcher Rachel Mindt, honorable mention; freshman catcher Anika Bjornson, honorable mention; junior outfielder Sara Nyland, honorable mention; and junior outfielder Taylor Reid, honorable mention.
