POTH -- The school year may be over, but the honors keep coming for area athletes, and a pair of softball players from Poth are two of the most recent to receive All-State honors. Senior pitcher and shortstop Ryann Boening was recently named Academic All-State, and junior outfielder Lauren Pape received All-State honors for her play by the Texas Girls Coaches Association.
For Boening, the team’s lone senior, the honor comes after getting the job done both on and off the field. In addition to her leadership and efforts on the field, Boening also got things done in the classroom, maintaining a grade-point average above 94 throughout her entire high school career.
At the plate, Boening helped lead the Pirettes with a batting average of .434, a slugging percentage of .606, and an on-base percentage of .618. She scored 42 runs, had 33 hits, and stole 29 bases. She had four triples, six doubles, and 12 RBIs. Boening had a great fielding percentage of .870, with 54 put-outs and 53 assists. Boening was a unanimous all-district pitcher, as well.
“Ryann was my lone senior this season,” said Head Coach Carilee Robbins. “She did an awesome job being a leader and helping our young players throughout the season. I will surely miss her next year.”
In the outfield, Pape got it done for the Pirettes, as well. The left fielder earned All-State recognition for her play, and helped Poth battle through a tough season.
Pape had a batting average of .466, an on-base average of .622, and a slugging percentage of .641. She had 34 hits and 31 runs, and had a whopping 24 RBIs. She hit three triples, two doubles, and one home run. Pape also had a fielding percentage of .857 with a total of 33 put-outs. She was also a unanimous first-team all-district selection.
“Lauren had a great offensive and defensive season,” said Robbins. “Our pitching was young, but we knew that if it was hit to Lauren, it was going to be an out. She did whatever it took to get to the ball if it was hit her way. She even slammed into a chain-link fence at Flatonia to catch a foul ball to get us out of the inning.
“Lauren did a great job this season,” Robbins added. “She is a great player and an even better kid. I am amazed by what she was able to do this season considering that she played with a bunion on her foot and just recently had surgery. She is going to be a major key to our success next season.”
