All-County Softball: Boone County had plenty of success on softball diamond

·4 min read

Jun. 19—There was no shortage of talent this year for the Boone County softball programs.

All three teams put up strong numbers throughout the season, with many highlights throughout the season.

With softball being one of the few sports in Boone County that can have a true county champion, the coaches and the Lebanon Reporter decided to have an all-county team for the 2021 season.

Players on the team were based on the overall standings in County games, with an extra player given to Western Boone due to their post-season success — making it the Class 2A semi-state.

Zionsville was the Boone County champion this year, beating both Lebanon and Western Boone, with the Stars finishing second based on their season-sweep of the Tigers.

The players selected came after discussions with county coaches and opposing coaches on their schedules.

The following girls have been chosen as all-Boone County for the 2021 season (By school, then alphabetical).
