Leagues name all-star teams

 

The postseason awards for Whitehall’s athletes have begun to roll in.

A number of players from the school’s softball and baseball teams were named to Adirondack League all-star teams.

Brett Christian and Josh Hoagland were both named second-team all-stars.

Christian, a senior, was the team’s leader and its best pitcher, consistently squaring off against the opponent’s best pitchers. He finished with a 4-5 record, including postseason play, and nearly led Whitehall to an upset over Schoharie in the opening round of the Section II, Class C playoffs.

He was named the team’s most valuable player at last week’s athletic awards banquet.

Hoagland, a junior, was the team’s most complete hitter. He led the team in both RBIs and home runs, while providing steady defensive play at first base.

Senior Codie Bascue received honorable mention. Bascue was one of the team’s top hitters and a disruptive force on the base paths. He was also a versatile fielder, splitting time between left field and third base.

Five players from the girl’s softball team were recognized as league all-stars.

Brittney Putorti was named to the Adirondack League First Team.

Putorti, a junior, pitched every inning of the team’s games, compiling a 12-5 record. She frequently overpowered her opponents, piling up 149 strikeouts on the season, including 18 in a game against Salem.

Her battery mate, junior catcher Victoria Christian, was named to the All-East Division Team for her stellar play behind the plate.

Head coach Pam Putorti called Christian and Putorti the best pitcher-catcher duo in the league.

Also named to the East Division team were juniors Carli Varmette and Ariel Ayers.

Varmette was the team’s shortstop, and provided steady production in the middle of the lineup and strong defense in the field.

Ayers was the team’s best defensive player and didn’t commit a single error at first base all season.

Jackie Raino received honorable mention for her play at third base.
