Chartiers-Houston lands three on All-State softball team
The Pennsylvania Softball Coaches Association released an All-State team in 2010, and the area, particularly Chartiers-Houston, was well-represented.
This year, an All-State team was compiled by Mark Temons – the head coach at Muncy High School – with the help of some media and other coaches. It had to be a massive undertaking, and the official team was released Sunday evening. Kudos to Temons for all his hard work.
Considering the number of players on the teams (Class AAAA, AAA, AA and A), there aren't many local players. One reason may be I never received information regarding the team until after the nominations were gathered. That may be one reason why some players made teams in the incorrect classifications.
Did any other local coaches have any input? Just curious.
Regardless, the players on the list are well-serving.
