2008 All-City Softball Team

Many softball teams in and around the Collar City had outstanding years in 2008. Cohoes went to the New York State final four for the second straight season. Troy won its third straight Big 10 title. Lansingburgh held off Mechanicville to win its first Colonial Council championship since 2002, when they split it with Mechanicville. Waterford-Halfmoon won a co-championship in the CHVL - their third straight season winning at least a share of the CHVL.

A number of individual players also had great success in 2008, including three league MVPs from the Collar City. And all three are juniors - so expect even more from this trio in 2009.

Shannon Jones of Troy was the Big 10 MVP and was the best pure hitter in the section - when opposing pitchers actually gave her anything to hit. Jones drew 29 walks and had a .690 on-base percentage.

Colonial Council MVP Erin Glikes.

Erin Glikes of Lansingburgh picked up the Colonial Council MVP, leading the Lady Knights to 18 victories and a 15-1 run through the Colonial - including foes like Class C state champion Mechanicville and Cohoes, one of the top four Class B teams in New York.

Jamie VanBramer
of Waterford-Halfmoon was a tremendous power hitter, slugging nine home runs and ten doubles for 41 RBI. She led the Lady Fordians to their third straight season atop the CHVL.

Three Cohoes seniors are bound for collegiate softball. Jessica Dearstyne will play at Saint Peter's College, pitcher Courtney Galuski will play at the College of Saint Rose in Albany and second baseman-shortstop Steph LaDue will play at SUNY-Cortland.

Lansingburgh's Molly McDonough owns the school record in career hits and freshman catcher Meg Volz had a monster year (.441, 25 RBI) after transferring from Catholic High.

Catholic High starter Nikki Hedrick will play at Alfred University next year.

The All-Area softball team will run in Saturday's Record and look for Lacrosse teams on Friday and the Baseball team on Sunday.
