Acorn softball player, Tori Barrett, was named to the All State Tournament Team after her performance in the 1A State Tournament for the Lady Tigers. Barrett was the primary pitcher for Acorn this year, helping lead the team into the state tournament. “Tori was our best player all year and our team leader. She did things and performed in a way that is deserving of being named to the All State Tournament Team,” says Coach Chris Ledbetter.
Tournament team players are nominated by coaches based on their performance in the State Tournament. “Tori had a great tournament for us in both of our games. Despite losing the second game, Tori played really well. In addition to pitching well for us all year, she also had a great bat. She hit the ball very well and in the second game against Woodlawn, she went 2 for 3 against arguably one of the best pitchers in the tournament.”
Barrett will return again next year for the Lady Tigers and will prove to be a key piece for their run to the State Tournament again. The future of Acorn softball looks good and Coach Ledbetter is excited, “We are going to get some great players coming up from junior high that we are extremely high on. It’s going to be fun watching us play for the next couple of years. Adding these girls coming up with Tori returning is going to be great for us.”
Congratulations Tori Barrett for being recognized for your performance on the field and being named to the All State Tournament Team.
