Greenbrier East softball players Josi Ervin, Aubrey Glover and Brooke Davis have been recognized and named to the all-state softball team this week.
Ervin and Glover were named to the second team, and Davis secured a spot on the honorable mention team.
Ervin had an excellent junior season on the pitcher’s mound and at the plate which is why she was listed as a utility player. She hit .323 and had an even 20 hits on the season. She also tied for the team lead with seven doubles and knocked in 12 runs. She scored nine runs as well.
“It feels like all the hours spent practicing are paying off,” Ervin said.
On the mound, Ervin threw 112 innings and allowed only 89 hits. She struck out 119 and had an impressive 2.12 ERA. Her record was 10-8.
Glover was a do-it-all type player and being a senior, the Spartans benefitted from that type of play. Glover hit .325 with six doubles and two triples. She had nine RBI’s, scored 27 runs and stole a team-leading 19 bases. Glover also hit her first career home run in the latter part of the year.
She lived by her own advice for her success this season.
“Always work hard and keep your head up no matter what,” Glover said back in May.
Another do-it-all type player, Davis, shined in her final season too.
She finished with a .333 average, seven doubles, a home run and 16 RBI’s. She was also second on the team behind Glover with 16 stolen bases.
“It feels great because it’s my senior year and I’m not ever going to get that opportunity again,” Davis said.
“Never take for granted the great opportunities you have throughout. You never know what you’re going to miss out on,” Davis concluded.
