HUNTINGTON, W.Va. —Four girls from Mason County were selected to the 2014 All-State Softball Teams, as voted on by the West Virginia Sports Writers Association.

Point Pleasant had three underclassmen spread around the Class AAA list, while Wahama landed the lone first team selection for the area in Class A. Hannan was the lone Mason County program to not be represented at the state level.

Senior Bailey Hicks was chosen to the Class A first team as an infielder and served as Wahama’s lone representative after guiding the Lady Falcons to another regional appearance.

The Buffalo duo of Chelsey Parkins and Ali Burdette shared first team captain honors in Class A, while Kylie Wells of Sherman came away as the second team captain.

The Lady Knights — who reached the Region 4 championship game — had three players chosen to the Class AAA list, although neither of the trio came away with first team accolades.

PPHS sophomore Karissa Cochran was named to the second team as a utility player, while classmate Makinley Higginbotham garnered special honorable mention accolades. Junior Madison Barker was also selected to the honorable mention squad in Class AAA.

Brooke West of Lincoln County was the first team captain in Class AAA, while Cassie Adkins of Spring Valley was chosen as the second team captain.
