Softball selections headlined by multiple stars

The softball All-Journal team consists of a variety of players from all six schools that the Turlock Journal covers.


Turlock Christian, Turlock, Pitman, Delhi, Denair and Hilmar are all featured in this selection for both the first and second teams.


Now remember, that these selections were based off individual performance in their respective positions and there were standouts.


There was definitely some positions that had to be moved to make room accordingly, as the second base and shortstop positions, which provided us with multiple players that could compete in that position and were moved to the utility or designated hitter spots on this list.


The list speaks for itself, along with the stats because some of these athletes hit over .651 — which is quite impressive.


You need to check this list out and just imagine the offensive power if you create a super team from all these six schools from our coverage area.


Only five players from this list will graduate, the rest will be returning so expect an even more powerful showing next season from all these schools. It should be a great one.
