Two Xavier Prep softball players were recognized for their efforts in 2016 with Sunday’s (May 29) release of The Arizona Republic/ All-Arizona and All-Division teams.
Senior center fielder Megan Donahey was named to the All-Division I team and senior pitcher-first baseman Caitlyn Dickman was listed as a Division I Honorable Mention selection.
Donahey, normally No. 2 in coach Carrie Markham’s batting order, hit .558 with 48 hits, 22 RBIs and 34 runs scored. She also stole 14 bases.
As a pitcher, Dickman was 11-1 with one save and 55 strikeouts in 87 innings. She also had a solid .424 batting average with 36 hits, 28 RBIs and 15 runs scored.
These two players, along with senior shortstop Becky Ducar, have been selected to participate in the annual Division I All-Star Game on June 8 at Gilbert Campo Verde.
Congrats to these girls and their teammates for a great season !!
