A pair of local softball players earned statewide recognition this past week with their inclusion on the Iowa Girls Coaches Association All State Softball Teams.
Emmetsburg senior Faith Schmidt and West Bend-Mallard senior Jessica Abrahamson were named to the second and third teams in balloting by member coaches.
Faith Schmidt led Emmetsburg to a State Tournament Appearance earlier this month and a seventh place finish to earn Second Team pitching honors on the Class 2A All State Honor team.
Jessica Abrahamson was a key in the success of West Bend-Mallard's Lady Wolverines this past season, as they missed the state tourney by two games to end an out standing season. Abrahamson was selected to the Class 1A third team as a catcher.
