All-state softball honors bestowed on Comet players

Meg Bane and Kate Bane, two members of this year’s Halifax County High School varsity softball team were named to the Virginia High School Coaches Association all-state softball team announced last week.

Meg Bane, a junior shortstop, was a Second Team selection, while Kate Bane a senior first baseman, was an Honorable Mention selection to the all-state team.

Both Meg and Kate Bane were All-Western Valley District and All-Northwest Region First Team selections, with Kate Bane being named Western Valley District Player of the Year.

The Banes played key roles in Comets’ softball teams that compiled records of 23-2 and 22-2 the past two seasons, including a quarterfinal appearance in the state tournament in 2011, and a semifinal appearance in the Northwest Region tournament this past season.
