Softball: Sanger pair earns all-state recognition

The Texas Sports Writers Association announced its all-state softball teams Monday, and Sanger seniors Morgan Turkoly and Kelly Mardones received honorable mention on the Class 3A squad.

Turkoly, a shortstop, is headed to Louisiana Tech. She was the Denton Record-Chronicle 2014 All-Area Softball Team most valuable player and helped lead the Lady Indians to a 28-11 record and the regional semifinals. She finished the season with a .565 batting average, 11 home runs, 11 doubles, 43 RBIs and 39 runs.

Mardones was the DRC pitcher of the year. She finished the 2014 campaign with a 26-7 record in 199 innings pitched, including a 1.73 ERA during Sanger’s playoff run. She struck out 225 batters this year.
