Joining Wruble and Constantino in earning first-team Class 1A honors were DCC’s Mia Meholick (So, Catcher), Avery Sickeri (Fr., Third Base) and Carley Semanick (Sr., Outfield).

Also earning a first-team nod in Class 2A was Curwensville freshman Joslynee Freyer (Designated Hitter).

DCC and Curwensville each had a second-team choice as well with junior shortstop Shay Gulvas giving the Lady Cardinals five all-state choices in Class 1A and sophomore shortstop Abby Pentz giving the Lady Tide a pair of Class 2A choices.

Joining Gulvas on the second-team in Class 2A was Elk County Catholic senior outfielder Sady VanAlstine, while Clearfield freshman Emma Hipps, the D9Sports.com Rookie of the Year, was a second-team choice in Class 3A at designated hitter (although her primary position for the Lady Bison was pitcher) while DuBois freshman Lauren Walker was a second-team choice in Class 5A in the outfield.
