CHARLESTON, W.Va. — A pair of Lady Knights ended up amongst the best.
The Point Pleasant softball team had two players named to the 2022 WVSWA Class AA softball teams, as voted on by a panel of media members within the Mountain State.
The Lady Knights — for a second straight postseason — had two honorees in the likes of junior Kylie Price, as well as senior Hayley Keefer.
Price was chosen as a utility player on the second team, while Keefer repeated on the honorable mentions list.
