Central headlines All-Area team with six picks

THOMASVILLE — Central headlines All-Area team with six picksThomas County Central followed up a region championship season with a second-place finish and another home playoff series.

Leading that charge for the Yellow Jackets were six selections to the 2013 Times-Enterprise coaches All-Area team. Five of Central’s six players were repeat selections as the Jackets received six of the 13 spots on the team.

The lone first-time selection from Central was senior outfielder Brooke Stanley. She joined junior pitcher Erika Greek (three-time pick), senior infielder Kendall Stanaland (three times), junior infielder Emily Corbitt (two times), senior ourfielder Savannah Morris (three times) and junior catcher Megan Shepherd (three times) as Jackets represented.

“I’m proud of all those girls,” Central coach Robyn Trammell said. “They’ve worked extremely hard and they work very well together. Each one of them contributed a great deal to our success this past season and the seasons before that.

“They’re just great kids that work well together. And they work hard all-year round. When they can get recognized, they certainly deserve that.”

Thomasville High School was also well-represented on the 2013 team with five picks, led by three-time selections Mattison Higginbotham, a senior infielder, and Jayla Grady, a senior outfielder. Grady was also named to the Georgia Dugout Club All-Star game. Senior catcher Amy Latner made the team for a second time following a season that included nine home runs and 40 RBIs. Those numbers also earned her All-State status, while junior pitcher Halie Morgan and freshman infielder Aubrey Baker were honored for the first time.

“I’m very proud of all of them,” Thomasville coach Ron O’Quinn said. “They are all very deserving.”

Rounding out the team were Cairo junior outfielder Lindsey Leverette and Brookwood senior infielder Vallie Smith, both first-time selections.

“She helped us out a lot,” Cairo coach Cathe Hoskins said about Leverette. “She was our defensive player of the year and also really helped us out offensively. She stepped it up this year.”

Added Brookwood coach Jonathan Groover about Smith: “She was just such a leader on our team this year as our only senior. She just played a crucial role offensively and defensively.”
