The N.C. Softball Coaches Association announced its all-district teams on Friday, and the East Surry Cardinals were heavily involved in the District 7 1A classification.

After going 22-7 and making it to the fourth round of the NCHSAA 1A playoffs, East Surry had four girls named to the all-district team in 2016, including pitcher of the year Emily Cummings. The lefty went 20-6 this past season with a 1.34 ERA and 176 strikeouts in 136 innings pitched.

Other Lady Cardinals selected for the team were Bethany Clayton, Brooke Whittington and Autumn Lawson.

Clayton batted .400 this season and led East Surry with 43 runs. Whittington was a.349 hitter and second on the team with 26 RBIs. Lawson batted .360 and also contributed inside the circle with a 2-1 record and a 2.00 ERA.

North Surry had one player recognized by District 7 for the 2A classification. Rising senior Cidney Fulk joined an all-district team stocked with Forbush players. Fulk batted .379 and was second on the North Surry team in RBIs and runs in 2016 while playing solid defense from her catcher position.

The player and pitcher of the year for the 2A District 7 each hailed from Forbush. Allison Mitchell earned the Player of the Year honor while Sydney Miller took home the Pitcher of the Year award.
