Local athletes play key roles for North All-Stars
“We’re lifting weights, conditioning and having shootarounds this summer,” she added. “I’m really looking forward to my senior season.”
Holt played at shortstop and second base positions for the North team in two all-star softball games, which were played at Lagoon Park.
The first game developed into a pitcher’s duel and ended in a scoreless tie. The South team prevailed in the second game, 7-2.
Holt started both games but was surprised when her name was penciled in at second base for the first game after practicing at shortstop. As a junior, she played third base.
While she failed to get a hit, Holt made good contact with the ball each time at bat and played flawlessly in the infield.
“I had a lot of fun,” she said. “I pretty much knew everyone on the team from travel ball.”
