Thursday news and notes….softball and track

The Cascade Conference has announced postseason recognition for softball, and several Cedarcrest High School players were honored for their play this spring.

Juniors Kayla Blakslee and Hailey Lacher, along with freshman Lauren Rich, earned first-team honors after helping the Red Wolves finish the season 17-5 and win the Cascade Conference crown this season. Sophomore Maddie Nixon and freshman Elaine Townley earned league second-team honors, while seniors Allie McCain and LuAnn Townley, along with freshman Cassidy Derieg, took honorable mentions for their efforts on the field this season.

We have yet to get information for other postseason recognition from the conference; when we get that, we’ll have that for you here.
