Cass softball power hitting standout Ansley Hight was recently named the Region 7-AAAAA Player of the Year.

The Lady Colonels’ junior played in all 24 games this season and slashed an impressive .408/.494/974 with an OPS of 1.468.

She blasted a dozen home runs, scored 25 runs, and finished with 42 RBIs. She drew 13 walks — including four intentional walks in one game against Calhoun — and struck out only nine times.

Her performance helped lead the Colonels to the state playoffs in Class AAAAA for the second straight season.

Two other Cass players — junior Alexis Woods and senior Kelly Young — also collected All-Region First Team honors.

Cass’ Eryn Lee and Rachael Lee were given Second Team All-Region nods while Saydee Najarro, Haylee Dishmon, and Darianna Sosa received Honorable Mention recognition.

Cartersville, which had no seniors on this year’s team, had nine players honored.

Juniors Kiley Arnold and Campbell Rogers were selected to the First Team. Mikey Lewis, Ava Perkins, Layne Callan, and McKinley Chada were named to the Second Team. Erin McCrary, Reese Dumas, and Jordan Bishop received Honorable Mention.

Woodland had eight players selected.

The Wildcats were led by First Team choices Cambrie Carrington, Lainey Baker, and Michiah Hicks. Cassie Jones and Dylynn Motes were selected to the Second Team while Jessica Ryan, Peyton Dorn, and Jordan Hammonds were given Honorable Mention honors.
