Comets varsity softball standouts Stephanie Clark and Sydney Puryear were named recently to the Virginia High School Coaches Association (VHSCA) Softball All-State squad. Clark, a senior pitcher, and Puryear, a sophomore infielder, each made the Second Team, All-Group AAA team.
Clark and Puryear were also First Team selections to the All-Western Valley District and All-Northwest Region teams, with Clark being named Co-Player of the Year for the Northwest Region.
The selections of Clark and Puryear to the All-Group AAA softball team capped one of the most successful Comets’ softball seasons in several years.
Halifax County finished with a 21-2 record, including a sweep of the regular season and tournament titles in the Western Valley District, and advanced to the Northwest Region playoffs.
