Multiple Teams · 4 Lady Canes Receive All-County Softball Team Recognition

Paris Poston, Cartersville

A mainstay of the Lady Canes lineup for years now, Poston put up double-take-inducing numbers in her senior season.

She recorded a hit in over half of her at-bats, posting a .519 batting average that led the county.

In fact, she led the county in all three triple-slash categories, posting a .519/.587/.805 overall line, good for a 1.392 OPS.

To put those numbers in perspective, only two other girls in the county even hit over .400, and only one got on base at a .500 clip.

Colbi Ballard, Cartersville

Ballard threw 103 innings as Cartersville’s primary pitcher this year, but her biggest impact was at the plate.

Teaming up with Poston in the middle of the Lady Canes lineup, she hit .390/.415/.610 with three homers.

Her power carried her to 26 RBIs, second-most in the county.
