A handful of softball players from Turlock and Pitman high schools have received annual Central California Athletic League recognition. 

Taking home two of the biggest honors was Turlock’s Chloe Dias and Pitman’s Madison Rosebrough. Dias was given the nod of CCAL Offensive Player of the Year while Rosebrough was awarded Defensive Player of the Year.

Dias’ honor came after a dominant senior year in which she led the entire league with a .512 batting average (44-for-86), a .558 on-base percentage and led her team with a 1.209 OPS. She also drove in 14 runs. On the base paths, the speedster swiped 23 bags and came around to score 34 runs. She plans to continue her softball and academic career at Grand Canyon University.

Rosebrough, also a senior who has committed to play collegiately at Stanislaus State, spent her time behind the dish for the Pride. In 21 total games at catcher, she had a .968 fielding percentage. She racked up 80 putouts in 94 chances, assisting on 11 more outs while only committing three errors.

Three Bulldogs were named to the All-CCAL First-Team — senior catcher Hailey Bacon, junior outfielder Ayla Lacerda and junior utility-woman Cadee Campbell. Joining the trio was Pitman senior shortstop Rylee Reeves.

Named to the second-team was Pitman third baseman Ella Underwood and Turlock sophomore first baseman Abby Maxwell.

Pitman senior Neveah Russo and Turlock senior Rylee Murphy were tabbed as honorable mentions.

This season, the Bulldogs played to a 13-9-1 overall record and were 8-7 in conference play — good enough for third place. They fell to Lodi in the first round of the Sac-Joaquin Section Division 1 playoffs last month. As for the Pride, they wrapped up their season with a 10-12 overall record, including a 4-11 mark in league play, missing out on postseason play by four games.
