Youth movement leads way for 7-4A All-District roster

— Staff Report

Aledo softball set the tone for the Class 4A, District 7 2013 All-District team. Despite its ‘senior-less’ lineup, the Ladycats dominated the all-district selections with three superlatives, four first-teamers and three second-team selectees.

Aledo sophomore Rhylie Makawe shared the district MVP award with Kendra Adams, a senior from Western Hills. Fellow sophs Alli Ramsey and Lauren Craine took Player of the Year honors for defense and pitching, respectively.

Overall, the young all-district team fielded just a half dozen seniors. Juniors led the number of selectees at 18 and there were 11 sophomores, with five of those from Aledo’s roster. There were also a handful of freshman in the 40-member A-D rolls. And Aledo was named he top coaching staff for 2013.

    Staff Report

    Summer athletic camps become a bit more “meaningful” in the late days of July and into  August, at least for some high school and middle school athletes.

    In most cases, the youth football camps include grades 6 through 8, and though there is no contact involved, some of the instructors of he camp may be getting a preview of the talent coming their way in just a few short weeks.

    Team volleyball camps, stretching from grades 4 through 12, provides a segway for many of the campers who will soon be entering workouts for the impending volleyball season.
