  • Eldorado High School junior-to-be Caitlyn Stafford was named to this year's Black Diamond All-Conference softball team.
    The eagle catcher had a fielding percentage of .984 with just one error behind the plate. She finished the season with 51 putouts.
    At the plate, Stafford led Eldorado with a .354 batting average, a .625 slugging percentage and a .436 on-base percentage.
    Stafford scored 12 runs, while hitting seven doubles, two home runs and finished with seven RBI, five stolen bases and struck out just six times, while walking seven.
    Stafford carried a 4.0 GPA this year and for head coach and father Tim Stafford, Caitlin's efforts on the field and off didn't go unnoticed.
    "She led our team in every aspect," Stafford said. "Caitlin was our catalyst offensively and defensively. She was a key role player and performed just as well in the classroom. You really can't ask much more from one of your players,"
    Stafford joins a list of 18 other All-Conference players that included Trico's Jordan Lodge, Ashley Modglin and Jessica Trange, as well as, Carmi-White County's Bailey Winters, Kelsey Rodgers, Kaylea Chappelle and Alexa Combs. Zeigler-Roylaton was represented by Lunnsay Wilson and Nichole Short, while Vienna put Miranda Chance on the team.
    Other players included: Breya Cope (Hamilton County), Sydnee Rushing (Goreville), Alyssa Kollak (Fairfield), Hayley Darnell (Goreville), Brea Bruan (Chester), Nicole Johnston (Johnston City) and Paige Newtarmew (Elverado).
    Making the Honorable Mention team were: Morgan Combs (Carmi-White County), Haley Mofsinger (Zeigler-Royalton), Chole Theis (Trico), Allison Tullis (Fairfield), Madeleine Clemmons (Hamilton County) and Lucendia Adams (Hamilton County).
