SYRACUSE —Recent Waverly graduate Shailei Kraft added one final honor to an impressive high school career Sunday when she was named fifth team all-state softball team in Class B by the New York State Sportswriters Association.
Kraft, a slick-fielding shortstop with a cannon of an arm, did not commit an error in 48 defensive chances this season.
She hit an astounding .689 on the season with 42 hits in 61 at-bats, including 19 extra-base hits. She had 13 doubles, five triples, one home run, 34 RBI, 36 runs scored, and struck out just three times in 68 plate appearances.
During her five-year varsity career, Kraft hit .498 with 137 hits in 275 at-bats, including 39 doubles, 12 triples, and five home runs. She also had 105 RBI, and scored 120 runs.
Kraft will play collegiately at Division II Dominican College in the fall.
