Sheldon's Cooper leads area Cal-Hi all-state softball players

Sheldon's Alexis Cooper, who led the Huskies to back-to-back Sac-Joaquin Section Division I softball championships, was named to the Cal-Hi Sports' All-State Softball First Team.

Cooper, The Bee Player of the Year, was 19-7, hit .379 and drove in 34 runs. The senior was the catalyst of a postseason romp that saw the Huskies go unbeaten and outscore their opponents 70 to 6.

She will play at Arizona State.

While Cooper was the only first team selection, seniors MeShalon Moore (UC Santa Barbara, catcher) of Sheldon; Alyssa Reina (North Dakota State, catcher) and Stephanie Ceo (Texas, shortstop/outfield) of Bear River; and Woodcreek junior pitcher Amanda Horbasch made the All-State second team.

Reina and Ceo also joined Center senior first baseman Natalie Hampton (Oregon State) on Cal-Hi Sports' Medium Schools All-State team.

Reina (.589 avg.) set nine school records, including most career home runs with 19, and Ceo (.489 avg.) belted two home runs and drove in five runs in Bear River's 9-3 Division III section title victory over Whitney.

Hampton batted .566 and drove in 33 runs this season.

Golden Sierra's Savannah Stephens (.630) made the Small Schools All-State squad and Casa Roble sophomore Krystal Aubert (.508) was first team and Horbasch (13-4, 0.96 eraned run average) second team State All-Underclass.
