Journal Star honors county softball players

Blair, Arlington standouts recognized


The Lincoln Journal Star recently released its Super-State and all-state softball teams, honoring players from Arlington and Blair in the process.
The Bears' Kalli Ulven was named a Super-State second-teamer, while also claiming first team Class B all-state honors alongside junior class teammate Nessa McMillen. The pitcher — Ulven — and infielder led BHS to a third-place finish at the NSAA State Championships last month.
BHS' Leah Chance, Sophia Wrich, Brooke Janning, Joslyn Policky and Tessa Villotta were also recognized by the Journal Star. They received Class B honorable mention.
Arlington's Cadie Robinson, Kiersten Taylor, Britt Nielsen and Hannah Stahlecker were bestowed Class C honorable mention by the Lincoln newspaper, too. Robinson, Taylor and Stahlecker are seniors, while Nielsen is a sophomore.
In addition to all-state honors, Blair recently revealed its All-Eastern Midlands Conference (EMC) honorees. Chance, Brooke Janning, McMillen, Sophia Wrich and Ulven were first-team recipients, while Villotta — a future South Dakota Coyote — Policky and Claire Mann claimed honorable mention. Cailey Anderson, Chance, Greta Galbraith, Audie Keeling, Ally Lynch, Mann, McMillen, Wrylee Osterhaus, Policky, Bria Scott, Josie Ulrich, Ulven, Villotta and Shelby Wolff also earned academic recognition from the EMC.
