A pair of local softball stalwarts have been named to the all-state team by the New York State Sportswriters Association.
Alexandra Macey of Crown Point Central School was named a fourth team Class D pitcher.
Jordan McKee of Ticonderoga High School was named a fifth team Class C pitcher.
Both are juniors.
Macey led Crown Point to the Section VII Class D girls championship and the Mountain and Valley Athletic Conference title this spring. The Panthers advanced to the state tournament, where they lost to Fort Ann.
Macey was the star in the section championship game against Elizabethtown-Lewis, a 3-2 victory. She had three hits at the plate, including the game-winner, and pitched a six-hitter on the mound, striking out 12.
After ELCS grabbed a 1-0 lead in the first inning, Crown Point tied the game in the third frame as Ellen Kiely singled, moved up a on hit by Macey and scored on an error.
It stayed 1-1 until the eighth inning when ELCS took a 2-1 lead on a pair of hits.
Crown Point rallied for the section crown in the bottom half of the inning. Logan Harrington singled and Julianne Glebus walked. An error allowed Harrington to score and advanced Glebus to third base. Macey then lined a base hit to win the game.
McKee led Ticonderoga to the Section VII Class C championship and the Champlain Valley Athletic Conference Division II title this spring. The Sentinels also advanced to the state tournament, falling to Greenwich in the regional final.
Like she did all season, McKee led Ticonderoga in the section championship game, a 6-5 win against Lake Placid. It marked the sixth straight section title for the Sentinels.
