C — Emily Taggart, Jr., Legacy: As strong an arm as you will find at the position and an equally dangerous bat.

DH — Tessa Anderson, Sr., Peak to Peak: It doesn't matter what level you are playing, when you hit .703 and are pitched around more often than you are pitched to, you are going to earn a spot on this team.

U — Bre Boruff, Sr., Mead: The speedy outfielder was a perfect 21 for 21 in stolen base attempts this season, just part of the reason she is headed to the University of Nebraska.

P — Taylor Gilmore, Jr. Broomfield: Stepped up and was at her best in some of their biggest games of the year. Look for an even bigger effort next season for Gilmore, who also had six home runs.
