Five Truckee High softball players earned Northern 3A all-league recognition for their play during the 2007 season.

The teams were voted on by Northern 3A coaches.

Junior outfielder Katie Reiswig was the only player named to the first team, meaning she’s guaranteed a place on the all-state squad, said Truckee head coach Mitch Brown.

Senior Kelly Stephens made second team all-league at shortstop and freshman Chelsea Cordell the same for her solid play at catcher.

Receiving honorable mention recognition was junior Annie Duner at first base and senior Jenny Geresy as an outfielder.

– Reiswig led the Wolverines in nearly every offensive category, finishing the season with a .581 batting average, a slugging percentage of .837 and an on-base percentage of .609. The outfielder tallied 15 RBIs and nine stolen bases while striking out just twice.

– Stephens, a four-year varsity starter, was one of the top defensive shortstops in the league, said Brown, describing her as “nails” when fielding her position. The leadoff hitter posted a .341 average and a .481 on-base percentage while driving in four runs and collected a team-high 23 stolen bases. The senior plans to play softball and basketball at College of the Siskiyous in Weed, Calif.

– Cordell posted the second-highest batting average on the team, at .565, and finished with a .717 slugging percentage and a .600 on-base percentage. The freshman knocked in 11 runs and stole 12 bases while striking out just four times. Brown described her as a gritty player with a bright future in the sport.

– Duner put up an impressive .419 average and .450 on-base percentage. She had four RBIs, seven strikeouts and six stolen bases.
