CHARLESTON, W.Va. — To the victors go the spoils.
The Wahama softball team — which repeated as state champions — had three players named to the 2022 WVSWA Class A softball teams, as voted on by a panel of media members within the Mountain State.
The Lady Falcons — for a second straight postseason — had three first team honorees in the likes of senior Lauren Noble, as well as juniors Mikie Lieving and Amber Wolfe.
All three were repeat selections to the same spots a year ago as Lieving was chosen as a pitcher, while Wolfe and Noble respectively garnered first team spots at catcher and an in the infield.
This year, however, Lieving was named the first team captain — signifying her as the top overall player in Class A this past season.
Chloe Treadway of Sherman was chosen as the second team captain in single-A.
Hannan did not have a player named to the all-state squad.
Below is the full list of the Class A softball teams, as released by the WVSWA.
