Superlative sophs top APC rolls


A trio of district MVPs was a foretelling of the eventual traffic jam at the top of the All-Parker County Softball Roster for 2013. But with the area’s track record in softball the proclivity of success is apt to produce a challenge each year — and indeed it does.

The county’s schools produced three district champions and sent four teams to postseason. Two of those teams went deep in the brackets, and Aledo’s Ladycats, a formidable presence in the Superlatives roster, followed the playoff trail all the way to Austin.

The sophomores in the 2013 APC class are illustrious of the youth movement evident even at the all-district level. Weatherford’s consistent pitcher and prolific hitter Kelso O’Brien, the 2013 APC Most Valuable Player, is merely the tip of the soph iceberg, with Aledo’s Rhylie Makawe, Alli Ramsey and Lauren Craine named Top Offensive Player, Defensive Player and Pitcher, respectively.

Classes are well-distributed in the top three tiers, with sophs and juniors in a dead heat at 13 each. Eleven seniors and a freshman rounded out the field.
