Comets make first team selections


The Halifax County High School varsity softball team made believers out of a lot of observers this past season, finishing with a 20-3 record and advancing to the second round of the Northwest Region Tournament.

It was rewarded for those efforts with four players being named to the Northwest All-Region team, with senior second baseman Meg Bane and freshman pitcher Taylor Barnes named First Team selections.

Senior outfielder Tayler Mosley was a Second Team selection, and senior third baseman Miyana Ross was an Honorable Mention selection.

Comets Head Coach Melanie Saunders noted the selections of four of her players to the all-region team.

“I’m pleased,” said Saunders.  “We had a great showing at the regional tournament, and the rest of the state realizes we play good ball at Halifax.”

District rival, Franklin County High School, also placed four players on the all-region team, with sophomore catcher MacKenzie Chitwood being a First Team selection.

Senior infielder Rachel Hale of Patrick Henry was an Honorable Mention selection.

Senior outfielder Hannah
Dudley and junior pitcher Hali Saul were Second Team selections, and sophomore infielder Logan Barbour was an Honorable Mention selection.

Alysha Richardson of Northwest Region champion Orange High School was named Player of the Year, and Doris Buzzell was named Coach of the Year.
