B-U’s McDaniels and Robinson earn All-State Softball honors

TENNERTON – Buckhannon-Upshur’s Shelby McDaniels and Brooklyn Robinson both earned honors on the 2022 West Virginia Sportswriters Association Class AAA All-State Softball Team.

Both players earned Honorable Mention honors.

McDaniels, a senior who recently announced her decision to play softball at Glenville State University, led the Lady Bucs in hitting with a .440 average. She collected 37 hits in 84 at-bats with nine doubles, one triple and three home runs.

She drove in a team-best 31 runs while finishing second on the team in runs scored with 34. In 96 plate appearances, she struck out just three times.

McDaniels also threw 26 2/3 innings for B-U and posted a 3-3 mark with an earned-run average of 3.68.

Robinson, also a senior, was third on the Lady Buc team in hitting with a .380 batting average getting 30 hits in 87 at-bats.

She had seven doubles, one triple and one home run while scoring 24 times and knocking in 24 RBIs.

“These honors are a great way to cap off their careers,” stated Buckhannon-Upshur head coach Levi Bender. “Shelby is a two-time all-starter and Brooklyn earned her first all-state honor. It is a great honor for both of them.”

Josie Bird of Lincoln County was named the captain of the First Team while Breonna Marietta of Morgantown as tabbed as the captain for the Second Team.
