Kalispell Glacier may have been greater than the sum of its parts during its State AA softball championship run this past weekend.
The Wolfpack garnered just two all-state selections. Missoula Big Sky, the team that the Kalispell girls beat twice on the way to the program's first state title, pulled in a state-high four.
A quartet of juniors earned all-state honors when the teams were released Tuesday: pitcher Macey Newbary, her catcher Morgan Johnson and infielders Kendall Rauk and Kendall Mooney.
Newbary threw 149 1-3 innings this spring with a 1.41 ERA and 216 strikeouts while going 18-4. She also hit 11 home runs – one more than Johnson, who finished with a .411 batting average and 33 RBIs.
Mooney led Western AA with 34 RBIs and added nine homers. Rauk batted .303 with three homers.
Glacier's Ali Williams, a junior who pitched the Pack past the Eagles in the state finals at Fort Missoula on Saturday for a 6-3 victory, led the conference in innings pitched (154), strikeouts (272) and ERA (1.36) and finished with a 20-3 record. She also bashed 11 home runs with 31 RBIs on her way to all-state honors.
Teammate Kayleena Ikeda was selected as a senior infielder. She hit .250 and drove in 11 runners.
Billings West, the third-place team from state, also drew four all-state nods from Eastern AA. Pitcher Ashley Davis led the way along with infielders Cody Rodgers and Lexi Mayhood and outfielder Mackenzie Mayhood.
Missoula Hellgate put a pair on the all-state team in outfielder Callie McKillop and utility player Talley Hill.
McKillop, a sophomore, led the Knights with three home runs and 21 runs. Hill, a senior, batted a team-high .517 with 17 RBIs. She also pitched the majority of the team's innings and struck out 76 batters.
McKillop joined Newbary as a two-time all-state selection. Williams and Ikeda were both chosen for a third consecutive year.
Sentinel had no all-staters, though freshmen Taylor Holmes (catcher) and Taylor Brinkman (designated player) were second-team all-conference.
