by Tad Brewer
Landmark reporter

After suffering from a season plagued by rained out ball games, a 10-9 record, the Platte County Lady Pirate softball team still had multiple players that were awarded All-Midland Empire Conference Awards.

Senior Samantha Ward received First Team All-Conference honors for her roll as pitcher throughout the past season.

The only other Lady Pirate to receive First Team All-Conference recognition was sophomore Hillary Tanck for utility infielder.

Seniors Devin McCray and Jamie Horst, and sophomore Heather Tanck all received Second Team All-Conference honors. McCray earned the award for first baseman; Horst received recognition for her roll at shortstop; and Tanck was given the honors for her play in the outfield.

Seniors Jessica Lackey and Jeanna Prather concluded the list of the Lady Pirates who received All-Conference honors. Lackey earned Honorable Mention for catcher while Prather received Honorable Mention status for third baseman.

Platte County tied for third overall in conference action. They concluded their season with a 4-2 conference record.
